When it often feels like so much of the new mid-rise architecture in this city is uninspired boilerplate, I have to give credit to Guerrilla Development for pushing Portland’s visual language.
A 19-unit apartment building? Someone sure doesn’t want to include affordable housing. I wonder how many units they would have built before inclusionary housing was in effect.
Ugh. They all look like high rise hospitals. Tall buildings block out the sun and make the city cold. Yeah, I’m a complainer and a reactionary.
