Weekly Roundup: Portland Building, Architecture Employment, HB 2001, and more

Portland Building
A report by the City Auditor was critical of aspects of the Portland Building rebuild.

The Daily Journal of Commerce wrote about how architecture and engineering employment continues to surge*, with firms such as SERA, LRS and ZGF now significantly larger than they have been in the past.

The Oregonian reported on an audit that found that the cost of the Portland Building rebuild was obscured by creative accounting.

A load of falsework props spilled at the 140 SW Columbia construction site, reports the Oregonian. There were no injuries.

As the 2019 legislative session draws to a close, HB 2001 is likely to reach the floors of the House and Senate in the next week, reports OPB. The bill, sponsored by House Speaker Tina Kotek, would legalize duplexes, triplexes and fourplexes in cities across Oregon.

Weekly Roundup: 1715 NW 17th, Culinary Corridor, Weatherly Building, and more

The former Premier Gear & Machine Works building is being converted to creative office space by LRS Architects and Sturgeon Development Partners.

With the pending construction of Block 216 set to displace the 10th and Alder food carts, the city is studying the possibilities for a ‘Culinary Corridor’*, writes the Daily Journal of Commerce.

The Portland Business Journal wrote about how an old gear and machine works factory at 1715 NW 17th Ave will become some of Portland’s newest creative office space.

The Oregonian wrote about the 12-story tower proposed adjacent to the Weatherly Building.

The proposal to re-legalize duplexes, triplexes and fourplexes throughout Oregon could be undermined by existing private deeds that prohibit anything other than single family homes, writes the Oregonian.

Senate Bill 10, sponsored by Senate President Peter Courtney, would require cities to allow dense development along major transit routes, writes the Oregonian. Portland would be required to allow up to 75 units per acre with a quarter mile of frequent transit, and up to 45 units per acre within a half mile.
