Is this the longest Metro Reports ever?
I think it is. The total valuation of commercial building intakes received last week was over $125 million. My guess is that a lot of projects were trying to get in the door before the hike in Parks System Development Charges, which took effect July 1st.
That makes a lot of sense, but wow. We need it. I’ve been watching the rental market recently, and I’ve seen a few places I used to rent available again. Not the same building, but the exact same apartment unit.
One was a studio apartment I used to rent a year and a half ago for $575/mo that was about 280 sqft. It was listed at $999/mo.
In NW I saw a pretty large studio I used to rent for $600/mo that was for $1050/mo, but it was 9 years ago when I rented that place and it was already a hot neighborhood. That may have been the least surprising price I’ve seen.
A house that I used to rent a room in for $425/mo is for sale for $689,000.
I just moved a few weeks ago and units similar to mine are already at least $125/mo more in the same complex. Just within a few weeks. It’s really amazing to watch this happen.
It’s pretty neat to see how many of these are low income too. The incentives that the city is giving (nixing height limits, tax breaks, etc.) are really working. The new STUNNING Framework building is even going to be affordable! Kind of a bummer for those making more though.. 🙂
What’s the 9-story building at 110 SE Washington St? That’s in the IG1 district. Is that currently in the Employment opportunity subarea? Even so, seems like it would exceed the allowance for industrial office. Interesting…
The Portland Business Journal wrote about the project today:
Is it just me or is Works Partnership completely phoning it in lately? This is yet another lazy facsimile of the last half-dozen buildings they’ve put forward.
The project on NW 21st looks like it is the Northrup food center. The NW Examiner just published an article that said the new owner would have to maintain the current structure for 10 years. Do you have any info about what is happening here?
