Weekly Roundup: Framework, OMSI Masterplan, Broadway Tower, and more

Framework

The proposed cross-laminated timber tower in the Pearl District has been cancelled.

Willamette Week broke that plans for high rise timber tower Framework will have fallen through. The building would have included 60 affordable housing units and over 30,000 sq ft of office space.

Portland based Gerding Edlen has been selected as the developer for the OMSI Masterplan, reports the Oregonian. The museum owns an 18-acre site, 11 of which are set to be redeveloped.

As the Broadway Tower nears completion, the Daily Journal of Commerce took a look inside*. The tower will include a Radisson Red hotel on floors 2-8 and office space on floors 9-19. The hotel is set to open in October, with work on the office floors likely to continue into next year.

The Oregonian reported that the city is considering increasing the size of the Interstate Corridor Urban Renewal Area to generate more housing promised as part of the N/NE Housing Strategy.

The Daily Journal of Commerce published photos of the recently completed Cadence Apartments at 2005 N Williams Ave. The 166-unit is the first new build development in Portland by San Diego based ConAm Group.

The Portland Tribune looked at Portland Public Schools’ newly unveiled plans for Lincoln High School, which will include a seven story classroom tower.

  1. These Cadence apartments look cool, but if anyone did there research they would find the most recent study of the air quality of Harriet Tubman school just nearby. The air quality is awful in that area due to I-5. I would not want to live there. “Let’s hang out on the rooftop space” – and breathe awful polluted air.
