Facade renovations will be compatible with the historic building and are anticipated to include a new canopy at the main entry, new main entry storefront system, and new carriage doors at the service entry inspired by the historic condition. The facade materials of the rooftop addition are intended to provide a clear distinction between the historic building and the new addition. The massing will be setback from the existing parapet wall to minimize site lines from the street.

It is just over a year since Next Portland last did a roundup of the tallest buildings planned or under construction in Portland. At that time, we counted 25 buildings over 100′ in height planned. Today we count 40. Given the length of time it takes to complete a high rise building, many of the buildings on the 2016 were also on the 2015 list. Four buildings are no longer on the list this year, due to having been completed: Block 17, Pearl West, the Aster Tower and Park Avenue West. Seven buildings that were still in the design phase last year are now under construction. No building on last year’s list is known to have been cancelled.
Read on to see our complete list. Where possible, the heights given are the building height as defined in the Portland Zoning Code and published in the Design Commission’s Final Findings. In some cases the heights have been estimated.
The Design Commission has approved a 15-story mixed-use development at 4th & Harrison, after four Design Advice hearings and two Design Review hearings. The 175’ tall building will provide 424 residential units, with a mix of studio, one, two and three bedroom apartments. At the ground level a 33,000 sq ft supermarket is planned, as well as an additional 5,000 sq ft retail space. 208 vehicular parking spaces are proposed, split between 137 spaces for the residents, and 71 for the supermarket / retail uses. An optional 4th parking level would provide an additional 80 spaces. The building will include 656 long term bicycle parking spaces.
After 4 Design Advice hearings, the proposed 15-story mixed-use development at 4th & Harrison has gone before the Design Commission for its first Design Review hearing. The 175’ tall building will provide 424 residential units, with a mix of studio, one, two and three bedroom apartments. At the ground level a 33,000 sq ft supermarket is planned, as well as an additional 5,000 sq ft retail space. 151 vehicular parking spaces are proposed, split between 80 spaces for the residents, and 71 for the supermarket / retail uses. An optional 3rd parking level would provide an additional 81 spaces.
Core Spaces are set to appear in front of the Design Commission with revised designs for 4th & Harrison, a 15 story apartment building. The proposed building will include 425 rental units, with a mix of studio, one, two and three bedroom apartments. According to the developer the intent is that the project will “have wide appeal including recent graduates and young professionals, families [and] empty-nesters.” Plans show a 30,000 sq ft grocery store at the ground level, along with a 5,000 sq ft ‘fast casual’ restaurant. The building will include 158 below grade car parking spaces, accessed from SW Harrison. 66 spaces will be reserved for the use of shoppers at the grocery store, with the remaining 92 spaces dedicated to residents of the building. The design architects for the building are Hartshorne Plunkard Architecture of Chicago, with Portland based Myhre Group Architects acting as consulting architects.
It’s now almost 6 months since the first post on Next Portland. Since then we’ve published over 180 posts and added over 350 projects to our map, which is a testament to the staggering scale of development happening right now in Portland. Much of this development is 4-6 story buildings along the corridors such as N Williams and SE Division, but there is also a large number of tall buildings going up in the Central City, which why we decided to list the 25 tallest buildings planned or under construction.
While the boom of the 2000s was defined by the activity in South Waterfront, today that district has no apartments or condos planned over 6 stories tall. By contrast the Pearl, the Lloyd District and the Central Eastside are all seeing their skylines altered. Activity in Downtown has quieter, but it also has the tallest building in our list, which is now the 4th tallest building in the city.
Where possible, the heights given are the building height as defined in the Portland Zoning Code and published in the Design Commission’s Final Findings. Where indicated the heights have been estimated.
As the SW 4th & Harrison student housing project by Core Campus heads to its first Design Advice hearing, more images have been published to the City of Portland website. The lead architect on the project is Hartshorne Plunkard of Chicago, with Myhre Group of Portland acting as Consulting Architects.
The U-shaped building includes 30,000 SF of retail at the first floor, and 14 floors of apartments. Two levels of underground parking are proposed, with 192 spaces, for the use of both the residents and the grocer. Outdoor amenity spaces are provided on the 2nd floor courtyard and on a roof deck at the 15th floor.
