Design Advice has been offered for the Dairy Apartments, a development proposed on the site of the former Sunshine Dairy in Kerns. The 7-story building is being designed by Hacker Architects for developer NBP Capital. 274 residential units are proposed, with the potential for a small amount of ground floor retail. 93 vehicular parking stalls are proposed in a below grade parking garage. 303 bicycle parking spaces would be provided, with 42 proposed in bike room and remaining spaces provided in the units.
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.
A 12-story mixed-use office and retail building at 510 SE Morrison St, adjacent to the Weatherly Building, has been proposed by developer Unico. At an initial Design Advice meeting the Landmarks Commission “recommended changes to the building’s massing, materials and height“*, writes the Daily Journal of Commerce.
NBP Capital has acquired the former Sunshine Dairy site at 801 NE 21st Ave, writes the Portland Business Journal (subscription required). An Early Assistance application was submitted in January for a 7-story building with 300-350 residential units.

Construction is underway on The Woodlark hotel, a major renovation of two downtown buildings. The project will convert two adjacent National Register listed buildings into a single hotel, to be operated by Provenance Hotels. News of the 151 bed hotel was first announced in February 2015, after years of uncertainty over the future of the Cornelius Hotel building, which faced possible demolition as recently as 2013. The renovation is being designed by MCA Architects and funded by NBP Capital.
