Garlington Center

The Garlington Center by Scott Edwards Architecture for Cascadia Behavioral Healthcare

An article in The Oregonian noted that South Waterfront “is booming again”. Projects mentioned include Zidell Blocks 4 and 6Riverplace Parcel 3, OHSU Center for Health and Healing South and the OHSU Knight Cancer Research Building.

The Portland Mercury reported that the City Council will vote this week on an ordinance that will direct money raised from short term rentals such as Airbnb into the Housing Investment Fund. The measure would allocate $1.2 million of new money for affordable housing every year.

Cascadia Behavioral Healthcare is planning a new integrated health clinic and low-income apartment complex, writes OPB. The Garlington Center at 3034 NE MLK Jr Blvd will replace an existing building on the site owned by the non-profit.

Plans are moving ahead for the new Multnomah County Courthouse, according to The Oregonian. The County is now planning on including the District Attorney’s office and high volume courts in the building, which is likely to raise the cost of the project by $40-50 million.

An article in The New York Times by local writer Brian Libby looked at the three building One North development on N Williams by Holst Architecture and PATH Architecture. The Karuna East office building was recently completed, and is leased to digital creative agency Instrument.

Digital product agency Uncorked Studios has leased the entire third floor of the 811 Stark building, according to the Portland Business Journal. The Central Eastside building by Works Partnership is currently under construction.

The City Council approved 10 year tax exemptions for three buildings that will collectively include 81 units of affordable housing, wrote the Portland Business Journal. The buildings are the North Hollow Apartments at 1501 SW Taylor St, the Vancouver Ave Apartments at the NE and SE corners of the N Vancouver Ave and N Shaver St,  and the Mississippi Apartments on N Fremont St between N Mississippi and N Albina Ave and on N Cook Street between N Albina and N Borthwick Ave.

The Willamette Week wrote about a potential conflict of interest identified by the City Auditor, due to the fact that members of the West Quadrant Plan Stakeholder Advisory Committee are landowners in the area. The Auditor’s report said that individuals such as Greg Goodman of the Downtown Development Group should have disclosed their financial interests before casting any votes, including ones that increased the allowable heights at the Morrison and Hawthorne Bridgeheads.

The Oregonian wrote that Portland’s 3.6% apartment vacancy rate was the lowest in the nation in 2014.

The current plan is to save the feed mill, the flour mill and the mounted patrol unit, but there is currently insufficient funds to bring them back into use.

Old Town Chinatown Block 33

Block 33 hotel by William Kaven Architecture

Portland Architecture broke the news of a proposed hotel by William Kaven Architecture on Old Town Chinatown Block 33. At up to 150′ tall, the project will need to wait until zoning changes approved in principle as part of the West Quadrant Plan come into effect.

A post on BikePortland said that the time is now to weigh in on the Broadway Corridor / Post Office redevelopment. An online survey at the PDC website will run through July 19th.

The Oregonian published details of the proposals received by the PDC for Riverplace Lot 3. One proposal from Gerding Edlen and REACH CDC would include a 30,000 sq ft grocery store, 200 units of low income housing in one building, and 100 units of workforce housing in another building. Another proposal by Williams & Dame and BRIDGE Housing also includes a grocery store, as well as 162 units of market-rate housing and 203 units of affordable housing.

The City Council held its first hearing on the SE Quadrant PlanThe Oregonian listed 5 things to know about the plan, which guide development in the Central Eastside for the next 20 years. Although no vote was held, Mayor Hales seemed to indicate that he was still weighing how much protection should be given to industrial users.

Changes might be coming to how density bonuses are achieved in the Central City. The City Council unanimously voted to direct the Bureau of Planning and Sustainability to bring forward proposals that scrap a number of the existing bonuses. There are currently a diverse number of ways for developer to gain extra floor area or height, including by providing ecoroofs, bike lockers, theaters on Broadway or simply building residential units. Instead, the council wishes for these bonuses to be narrowed to focus on affordable housing.

A property at 221 SW Naito Parkway has been sold to an undisclosed buyer. A Design Advice Request was held earlier in the year for a Worldmark by Wyndham.

Developer Urban Asset Advisors is planning a mixed use development at 7707 SW Capitol Highway, reports the Portland Chronicle. The building would include 71 residential units with 60 parking spaces, and two retail spaces.
