A new hotel by Works Partnership has been proposed for the corner of E Burnside and SE 9th Ave. The 6 story building would include ground floor retail and restaurant uses, a second floor indoor/outdoor event space and four floors of hotel rooms. With projections of 8′ over the street, the building would be the latest addition to the lower Burnside arcade district, which includes both historic buildings and new buildings such as Works Partnership’s own office.
The site at 910 E Burnside is currently developed with a single story restaurant building, which City records show as dating from 1931. The building was most recently occupied by Boogies Burgers and Brew, which has now closed.
The Pre-Application Conference [PDF] is scheduled for October 27th at 8:30 AM. A Design Advice Request hearing is currently scheduled for November 12th. The building will be required to go through a Type III Design Review in order to gain approval.
This creation reminds me of the government building in Goshen, New York. http://www.nytimes.com/2015/01/28/arts/paul-rudolph-building-in-goshen-ny-faces-threat.html
Or it reminds of the Works building going up at the Burnside Bridgehead, or the one going up at Sandy and Stark, or..
I’m curious about the details of this “indoor/outdoor event space”. At any rate, it’s a good spot for a hotel with even space, given its proximit to the Doug Fir/Jupiter Hotel.
I think it’s cool. The little, one-bed rooms are a little curious though.
