Hyatt Place & Allison Residences Approved, Appealed to City Council (images)

The Design Commission has approved the Hyatt Place & Allison Residences, a 23 story tower in the Pearl District. That decision has now been appealed to the City Council by the Pearl Neighbors for Integrity in Design (PNID), a group of nearby residents that is separate from the neighborhood association.

The project is being developed by Vibrant Cities in partnership with the Sunray Group, with design by Otak. The lower 11 floors of the 249′ tall building would be occupied by a 160-room Hyatt Place branded hotel. The upper 12 floors would be residential, with 113 apartment units. No vehicular parking is proposed. Bicycle parking spaces are proposed in a basement bike room.

The building will be subject to the city’s inclusionary housing rules, which require the provision of affordable housing or the payment of a fee-in-lieu.

In contrast to 2017 and 2018, the most popular articles of the year were generally ones published this year. The lone article in the list published before 2018 was about Eleven West, which was approved in 2017 but only recently submitted for permit.

Four of the most popular post were about high rise towers: Block 216; Eleven West, Toyoko Inn; the Hyatt Place and Allison Residences; and the Holden of Pearl. Two posts in the list were about large site master plans, the Broadway Corridor and OMSI Masterplan.

Weekly Roundup: Hyatt Place, Willamette Blocks, Lents Commons, and more

The Willamette Blocks proposal went in front of the Design Commission last week, but Commissioners found it was not yet ready to approve. The project will return in front of the Commission in February.

The proposed location for valet parking at the Hyatt Place and Allison Residences could interfere with the long-awaited Flanders Bikeway, writes Willamette Week.

Work still remains* before the Willamette Blocks proposal in South Waterfront can be approved, writes the Daily Journal of Commerce.

In a sizzling real estate market, city-owned storefronts have stood vacant for nearly two years at Lents Commons, reports Willamette Week.

Popular sneaker shop Compound Gallery is relocating to the 10th & Yamhill Smart Park—despite city policies to encourage retail in Old Town / Chinatown, reports Willamette Week.

Weekly Roundup: Willamette Blocks, Rocket Empire Machine, River District Navigation Center, and more

The Willamette Blocks proposal by developer Alamo Manhattan was presented to the Design Commission last week.

The Willamette Blocks proposal in South Waterfront (previously known as the Landing at Macadam) is facing a blacklash* from nearby residents, writes the Daily Journal of Commerce.

OPB covered the River District Navigation Center (previously known as the Oregon Harbor of Hope) which opened after the largest-ever single contribution to Portland and Multnomah County’s shelter system.

The Portland Tribune wrote about a work session on the Housing Opportunity Initiative—the combined package of the Residential Infill Project, Better Housing By Design and the Anti-Displacement Action Plan. Later in the year City Council will consider a plan to allow up sixplexes on lots currently zoned single family, if half of the units in the structure are affordable.

A new food hall and brewpub will open in Montavilla’s Rocket Empire Machine, writes Eater Portland.

The Land Use Board of Appeals (LUBA) has remanded the Central City 2035 Plan, over the issue of building heights allowed in Chinatown. In 2018 City Council settled on a 200′ height limit for parts of the district, replacing previous zoning that ranged from 100′ to 425′. Critics said that a 200′ height limit is too high. LUBA decided that the City did not adopt adequate findings to explain why 200′ complied with its adopted policies.

The Nature Conservancy showcases its mission with revamped Portland headquarters, writes the Portland Business Journal.

Portland Architecture considered height limits in the Pearl and Old Town, with the Hyatt Place and Allison Residences in mind.

The Oregonian reports that after “a brief reprieve, Portland-area rents are starting to tick up again.”

Broadway Corridor
The redevelopment of the former USPS Processing and Distribution Center in the Pearl could include up to 4 million square feet of new commercial, employment, and residential development.

Issues around the Green Loop still lingered at a second Design Advice Request meeting* for the Broadway Corridor, reports the Daily Journal of Commerce.

The latest proposal for the relocation of the 10th & Alder food carts is for 30 carts to relocate to Ankeny Square at SW Park and Ankeny, according to the Oregonian. The carts lost their former home to make way for the Block 216 tower. A previous plan would have seen them moved to the North Park Blocks.
