  1. It’s about damned time that building on Belmont got going! I thought they would never start on it! Now if they could just get that project at the movie theater by the Lloyd Center going…

      • You kidding me? It’s a cool cinema, but it’s a done deal, and I’d rather just have it over with. It’s like a band-aid: you rip it off quickly. It hurts less that way. The development at least looks half way decent, not that I’d ever be able to afford to live there. Besides, the cinemas Downtown are easier to get to on the bus. This place relies on the 70 which isn’t a full time line. Not only that, a block away they are going to build essentially a replacement cinema, so we’ll all still be able to go there for movies, just across the street. Seems fair. What can I say? I’m a construction buff. I love watching things get built. 🙂

      • Nobody stands to make bank, that’s why it is taking so long. There isn’t any demand there. Hassalo got built and then they put Oregon Square on hold. Now they want to build offices because the apartments there aren’t making money. The mall is a ghost town since the reno. The mall doesn’t want mall stores and none of the stores they want will locate there because, well, would you open a nice sit down restaurant or a night club there?

    • unfortunately, that whole area around the Belmont project…. pretty much all of the inner East side is so damn banal it hurts. Such a generic souless stretch of nothing.

      • It’s not that bad. Three breweries just up the block on Belmont and the new Goat Blocks development. A quick walk over to East Burnside as well. Many of the buildings around there are still quite industrial but some of them are really neat, such as the Redd and their new project.

        It’s a work in progress but its coming along nicely. Can’t wait for the

        • The Grand Ave Historic district is pretty tepid right now but lots of potential there. I’m extremely excited for the Chamberlain Hotel project to get underway.
