The above-ground gross square footage for the proposed 33-story podium and tower at SW 10th & Washington (750,000 square feet) is slightly bigger than for the US Bancorp Tower aka Big Pink (740,000 square feet according to Wikipedia.) This would make it the largest building by square footage in downtown. It will be interesting to see how this plays out in the massing. It would be a Portland touch if the podium included arcades at the base where at least some of the food carts could remain – a contrast between the new, big, sleek and expensive with the funky, small and low-cost. But, that isn’t going to happen….
This building won’t even be built. Take a look at the pattern of buildings proposed that are over 21 stories in this town. It’s rare they actually break ground. Now does it happen? It does but again it’s not very often. It’ll get cancelled, tremendously reduced in size, or stalled for many years.
Eleven West is an example, Oregon square is another example, the site near here on 330 SW 10th that was proposed for 23 stories is another example, the list goes on..
This is Portland after all
