Designs for the James Beard Public Market were released by Snøhetta. Portland Architecture provided extensive coverage of the announcement, where Snøhetta founding partner Craig Dykers spoke about how they arrived at the design.

Also at OHSU, Portland Monthly had a look at the soon to open Treehouse Apartments by Lever Architecture. The apartments are a rare residential development on Marquam Hill.

The Portland City Council approved a ‘make or break’ deal with ZRZ Realty that will spur development on the Zidell Yards.

Upcoming micro restaurant spot The Zipper has lined up another tenant: Paydirt, a new bar by the people behind The Old Gold.

Creative agency Swift has signed a lease for 30,000 sq ft of office space at the under construction 1638 NW Overton building.

Focus: 25 Tallest Buildings Planned or Under Construction

It’s now almost 6 months since the first post on Next Portland. Since then we’ve published over 180 posts and added over 350 projects to our map, which is a testament to the staggering scale of development happening right now in Portland. Much of this development is 4-6 story buildings along the corridors such as N Williams and SE Division, but there is also a large number of tall buildings going up in the Central City, which why we decided to list the 25 tallest buildings planned or under construction.

While the boom of the 2000s was defined by the activity in South Waterfront, today that district has no apartments or condos planned over 6 stories tall. By contrast the Pearl, the Lloyd District and the Central Eastside are all seeing their skylines altered. Activity in Downtown has quieter, but it also has the tallest building in our list, which is now the 4th tallest building in the city.

Where possible, the heights given are the building height as defined in the Portland Zoning Code and published in the Design Commission’s Final Findings. Where indicated the heights have been estimated.

1 – Park Avenue West

Height: 460′
Architect: TVA Architects
