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 February 14th, 2022 to February 20th, 2022.

Early Assistance has been requested by Lever Architecture for Albina One north of 253 N Broadway:

Construction of a new 100% affordable housing building with 7 stories and 94 units. The project is on the site of an existing surface parking lot and is the first project in the Albina Vision Trust masterplan. In addition to the apartments, the building will have resident services run by POIC-RAHS, a community room and property management spaces. This is an early design however there is potential for balconies as shown in the drawings and the client would like to include solar panels on the roof. The intent of the project is to create a plaza/open area on the south side of the building that might be activated for community gatherings. An open area on the north side would be for a kids play area and resident use only.NOTE: Project is subject to a Type 3 DZ but applicant is choosing a Type 2 per footnote 2 Table 825-1.

A project at the SW Corner of NW 17th Ave & NW Couch St has been submitted for a Type III Historic Resource Review:

HLC HEARING – Type III Historic Resource Review for a proposed new 5-story, 19-unit apartment building on the site of a non-contributing surface parking lot in the Alphabet Historic District. Ground floor programming includes, residential units, bike parking, trash room, and mail room. Materials include: ¿cast stone veneer¿ base, brick veneer on stories 2-5, and aluminum clad wood windows. No parking is proposed. No Modifications or Adjustments are proposed. The proposal includes non-exempt development within the Alphabet Historic District therefore prompting Historic Resource Review prior to the issuance of building permits.

Early Assistance has been requested by Design Research Office for a project at 4066 NE Grand Ave:

40 unit, six-story affordable housing project intended to serve black seniors earning less than 30% MFI.

A renovation to PSU Vernier Science Center (previously Science Building One) at 1025 SW Mill St has been submitted for a Type II Design Review by Bora Architecture and Interiors:

Inaccessible stairs to the podium from 10th Avenue and Mill Street will be removed. A new stair and accessible ramp on Mill Street will provide an equitable access point to the podium level from the south. The existing accessible ramp to the west from 11th Avenue will be maintained. – The accessible building entry will be rebuilt on the south side of the building at the podium level and will include a new vestibule. This will be the primary entry to the building. The proposed design removes all occupied uses from the 6th floor, in order to bring the building height below the threshold that would trigger high rise construction requirements. The existing enclosure at the 6th floor will be retained to as great extent as possible and used to house mechanical equipment. The existing façade will be modified as part of this project. The podium-level enclosure at the first floor will be replaced in its entirety and its footprint expanded. The new façade will be primarily glass, with some solid panels – On the upper floors of the tower, all existing windows and panels will be removed and replaced in the same location that they currently exist. New thermally insulated windows and panels will be installed; new windows will be introduced into the east and west facades which are currently clad with opaque panels. On the north and south elevations, the recessed window position as it currently exists will be retained. – At the podium walls to the basement, new windows will be introduced on the 10th Avenue Façade – The remaining exterior finishes will be cleaned and repainted.
