Weekly Roundup: 6036 SE Foster, 3rd & Salmon, Canopy by Hilton, and more

The redevelopment of the YMCA on Foster is being designed by Leeb Architects.

We’re back after taking a summer vacation. This roundup covers development news from the last two weeks.

The Oregonian reported that millions in infrastructure costs sank the Zidell Yards development in South Waterfront.

With the main post office in the Pearl now closed, BikePortland reported that the risk to cyclists from right-hook collisions has dropped. The site is set to redeveloped as part of the Broadway Corridor Plan.

The Oregonian took a first look at the newly completed Canopy by Hilton hotel in Pearl District.

Demolition has begun on the former Lotus Cardroom and Cafe, according to the Oregonian. The building is being torn down to make way for the 20-story 3rd and Salmon hotel tower.

The NW Examiner looked into what might happen with ESCO site on NW Vaughn.

City Observatory praised the Portland City Council for reversing its early denial of the Fremont Place Apartments, but noted that the City Council did not approve a zone change for a site at 126 NE Alberta St that would have allowed the construction of 50 below-market, affordable apartments adjacent to the Alberta Abbey.

The Daily Journal of Commerce reported on the redevelopment of the YMCA at 6036 SE Foster Rd, which will combine a full-service daycare facility with 48 new apartments*.

Portland Architecture wrote about Heartlinethe Pearl district development that presents an alternative to the podium typology.

Weekly Roundup: Zidell Yards, 9North, Centennial Mills, and more

Plan view of the planned improvements at the Zidell Slipway, designed by PLACE landscape architects. The conceptual designs were presented to the Design Commission in December, but are now on hold.

The Oregonian reported that the Zidell family have suspended plans for development on the Zidell Yards in South Waterfront. The Portland Tribune reported that “as the scale of the plan had increased, so the city’s willingness to split the cost of infrastructure had waned.” Portland Architecture wrote about the film ‘Built by Zidell’, which covers the family’s legacy on the site from 1928 to 2017, when the company launched its last barge.

The Portland Business Journal took a look at Simple’s Central Eastside campus, which now includes Clay Creative and 120 Clay.

According to the Portland Mercury Good Coffee Company has opened its third location in Slabtown’s Leland James Building.

The Portland Business Journal published photos of the 9North office building, originally known as Station Place Lot 5, currently taking shape in the Pearl.

The Daily Journal of Commerce reported on the Lynd Company’s plans for Centennial Mills. While still in the early stages of development, the site is being masterplanned by SERA Architects who say the site could “support three to four buildings on it.”
