Weekly Roundup: Zidell Yards, 9North, Centennial Mills, and more

Plan view of the planned improvements at the Zidell Slipway, designed by PLACE landscape architects. The conceptual designs were presented to the Design Commission in December, but are now on hold.

The Oregonian reported that the Zidell family have suspended plans for development on the Zidell Yards in South Waterfront. The Portland Tribune reported that “as the scale of the plan had increased, so the city’s willingness to split the cost of infrastructure had waned.” Portland Architecture wrote about the film ‘Built by Zidell’, which covers the family’s legacy on the site from 1928 to 2017, when the company launched its last barge.

The Portland Business Journal took a look at Simple’s Central Eastside campus, which now includes Clay Creative and 120 Clay.

According to the Portland Mercury Good Coffee Company has opened its third location in Slabtown’s Leland James Building.

The Portland Business Journal published photos of the 9North office building, originally known as Station Place Lot 5, currently taking shape in the Pearl.

The Daily Journal of Commerce reported on the Lynd Company’s plans for Centennial Mills. While still in the early stages of development, the site is being masterplanned by SERA Architects who say the site could “support three to four buildings on it.”
