Metro Reports have moved to Portland Maps Reports. Next Portland covers the highlights of the Early Assistance applications, Land Use Reviews and Building Permits processed each week. This post covers November 22nd, 2021 to November 28th, 2021.

The Argyle Apartments at 1838 N Argyle St have been submitted for a Type III Design Review by Wright Architecture:

DZ HEARING – Type III Design Review for construction of approximately 290 residential units in an eleven-story building in the Kenton Plan District. The project site includes two parcels totaling 25,000 SF adjacent to the Kenton / North Denver Avenue MAX light rail station. The project includes main entrances along both street frontages, outdoor areas at the ground level and the rooftop, individual balconies, and common spaces through the building. A composite rain screen cladding is proposed above a concrete base with metal storefront systems at the ground level. Because the proposal is for new development in the Design Overlay Zone, Design Review is required.

A Pre-Application Conference has been scheduled by GBD Architects to discuss a revised concept for 550 SE MLK:

The proposed development is for a 7-story building occupying a site at SE MLK Blvd. and Stark Street – the site is slightly smaller than a half-block, at 17,900 square-feet. The proposed building is planned as a “5-over-2” structure, with 5 levels of Type III wood construction, over 2 levels of Type I concrete construction. The building will remain within the code-allowed height limits of the most restrictive construction type (85 feet), with the highest occupiable floor at a height of less than 75 feet from the lowest point on site (not a high-rise). The building uses include an at-grade parking garage, along with commercial retail spaces, residential amenities and a lobby at the ground floor and residential dwelling units of varying sizes at levels 2 – 7. Parking for the development will be accommodated at grade within the building shell, with multi-level, automated parking stackers and surface parking stalls. Outside of the parking stacker pit structures, no basement level is planned for this project. Two Standard B loading stalls are also accommodated within the garage structure. The garage will be accessible through a 20-foot wide gate located on SE Washington Street, approximately 55 feet east of the SE MLK Blvd. intersection.
