What does the London Shard, pictured here to the left of Tower Bridge, have to do with the 2012 Portland Street of Dreams? Very little, but as a comparison, you could by EVERY house in this year’s show four (maybe five) times over and still have money left over to fill all the garage spaces with luxury cars. One of the condo units will set you back a cool £40M. That converts out to about $60M. The building is the tallest in Europe, cost over $2 billion to build, and has an observation deck on the 72nd floor (Portland City Grill is on the 30th floor of the US Bank Building).
It’s not lost on me that I still owe my review of the Street of Dreams from last week’s visit.
