A masterplan for the Broadway Corridor went in front of the Design Commission last week. The Daily Journal of Commerce reported that Commissioners had questions* about the “buildings’ podium heights, the curb-less Green Loop on the North Park Blocks and the arrangement of buildings on developable blocks.”
2019 was the fifth full year that Next Portland has been in operation. Over the course of the year 145 articles were published.
In contrast to 2017 and 2018, the most popular articles of the year were generally ones published this year. The lone article in the list published before 2018 was about Eleven West, which was approved in 2017 but only recently submitted for permit.

A master plan for the redevelopment of the former Post Office site in the Pearl District has been presented to the Design Commission. Known as the Broadway Corridor, the full build-out the site will include approximately 4 million square feet of new commercial, employment, and residential development. The concepts by ZGF Architects build on the 2015 Framework Plan, which was used as part of the decision making process when the city purchased the site. Developer Continuum Partners of Denver is acting as an adviser during the master planning process.
As much as 2 million square feet of development in the Central Eastside is proposed as part of the OMSI Masterplan, reports the Oregonian—the equivalent of two U.S. Bancorp Towers. The masterplan went in front of the Design Commission for its first Design Advice Request meeting last week.
A resident-run retirement community is planning a $100 million expansion, reports the Oregonian. The Terwilliger Plaza Parkview Building will rise to 10 stories and include 127 one- and two-bedroom apartments.
A proposed bill in the Oregon legislature aims to create more lower priced condominium units. Developments that go through a more stringent envelope inspection would see the period for lawsuits reduced from 10 years to six, and require approval from a majority of homeowners to initiate a lawsuit.
