SW 4th and Harrison (formerly HUB) | 175' | 15 floors | Proposed

Surprised this didn't get some comments when I mentioned it in the Downtown thread.

From this week's list of land use intakes:

Quote:
PROPOSED PROJECT WILL BE A MIXED DEVELOPMENT WITH RETAIL GROUND LEVEL AND 13-15 STORIES OF RESIDENTIAL APARTMENTS ABOVE. CURRENT PLANS ARE FOR A GROCER TO OCCUPY THE ENTIRE GROUND FLOOR AND THE RESIDENTIAL TO BE A MIX OF PRIMARILY STUDENT HOUSING FOR PSU AND MARKET RATE APARTMENTS.
Site is 325 SW Harrison St, which is owned by the Goodmans. The site is beside the Cyan, and has a 175' height limit. FAR is 6:1, bonusable to 9:1. At 16 stories, this project would be roughly the same height as the Cyan.

Applicant is Chicago-based Core Campus LLC. Their work seems to be pretty flashy, and targets the high end of the student housing market. Their completed projects include amenities like swimming pools, gyms, tanning beds, steam rooms and sand volleyball courts. (Click through to the website if you want to see lots of building renders, populated by extremely good looking people of both sexes wearing next to nothing). Unit sizes range from studios to 5 bedrooms, with each bedroom leased individually.

They have a building under construction in Eugene to serve the University of Oregon. Here's a marketing video for it:
