We’ve already talked a lot about the Strand, Vaux, Merriwether, and other complexes already under construction. A special note and condolences goes out to the friends and family of Erik van Doormick, the developer of the Benson Tower, who was killed in a private plane crash at the beginning of June.
So what’s next? Rumor on the street based on what I’ve heard:
Portland City Council had a change of heart and approved the Uptown Condo project behind the Uptown Shopping Center at NW 24th and Burnside. The building will be 150 feet tall, twice the height city code allows for.
The Cambridge is seven units on NW Westover between Flanders and Glisan. They are listed in the mls system between $665,000 and $749,000 and are scheduled for early spring 2007 completion.
Demolition is in full swing at NW 13th and Marshal. The Coplin will take its place.
Hoyt Street Properties has two projects coming up. The Metropolitan will be in the block south of the new park under construction. It will be very high end. After the Metropolitan is online, they will start a loft project on the block north of the Pinnacle.
Sales of the John Ross units in the South Waterfront should begin soon. These, of course, are in Southwest, not Northwest like the places mentioned above.
We are not the listing agents for any of these projects but can work with you as buyer’s agents.
