Focus: 20 new hotels proposed for Portland

When construction activity first started to return to Portland around 2012 it seemed like all that was being built was apartments. While residential still dominates the construction industry, other sectors of the market have started to return. In the last year there has been been a noticeable increase in the number of hotels proposed in Portland. Next Portland counts at least 20 hotels either proposed, going through Design Advice / Design Review, being reviewed for building permits or under construction. Together these represent over 3000 new rooms, a substantial number for a city that had 25,924 rooms in its metro area as of 2014.

It is unlikely that every single hotel on this list will be built; some of the Early Assistance application may represent property owners performing a feasibility study, and there is always the possibility of a downturn in the economy. Even still, it’s clear that Portland is going to have a substantially larger number of hotels in just a couple years. Click through to see the full list, arranged by number of rooms.

Weekly Roundup: Old Town hotel, density bonuses for affordable housing and more

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 proposal by Capstone Partners, working with Home Forward and Innovative Housing includes 110 market-rate units and 215 units of affordable housing, as well as a grocery store by Fred Meyer.

The Portland Chronicle wrote about the proposed apartments planned for 5134 SE Division St. As noted in the article, a protest was held nearby by the Facebook group Stop Demolishing Portland, with an estimated 40 people in attendance.

The Loyal Legion opened this week in the I.O.O.F. Orient Lodge / PPAA Building, with a bar that includes 99 Oregon beers on tap. The Oregonian had a first look at the newly built interior.

With the first units now open at Hassalo on EighthBikePortland asked whether the Lloyd District might be Portland’s next great bike neighborhood.

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.
