Aren't the suburbs around Belleview fairly expensive? And Microsoft is one city over. Gateway has no large equivalent, large employers that would draw higher income people to the area, which would stimulate development. For a "Portland Belleview" to occur, I think it would have to be on the west side.

I meant more a development pattern similar to Bellevue in that the mall comes before the density. In Gateway's case it has the advantage of MAX already being in place to supplement excellent freeway access to jump-start the densification process.

I doubt Portland will ever have a suburban center as large and wealthy as Bellevue though.

I thought the Bellevue development area was just the city hall, a mall, and a bunch of condo towers. Oh, they have a park too... but I didn't think the new downtown high-rise district had any office or major employers...?

I agree, Gateway needs a solid urban development plan, placing lots of high-density office uses near the MAX stop (the hospital they just built is not a very good use of that site), some retail, a pedestrian plaza, and then housing and park space further away...

Eddie Bauer and Microsoft both have offices in the new office tower across the street from Bellevue Square. There are numerous software companies located in downtown Bellevue Office towers..

my point was just that the kind of highly paid employment surrounding Belleview doesn't exist around Gateway, so there's probably not much market for the condo towers Belleview has.

William Wilson Architects PC: Gateway 99

POSTED: 04:00 AM PDT Monday, August 4, 2008
BY NATHALIE WEINSTEIN

William Wilson Architects PC has designed a new mixed-use project in Portland’s Gateway District.

Responding to the city’s need for higher-density living and pedestrian-oriented transit, Gateway 99 will include 166 residential units; 35,000 square feet of commercial space; and a large, 19,000-square-foot, landscaped courtyard on its second floor. The commercial space, as well as parking facilities, will be contained within a concrete podium at the structure’s base. On top of the podium will be the courtyard, surrounded by wood frame structures containing 135 apartment units and 31 condominium units. A rainwater harvesting system on the building’s roof will collect stormwater and channel it through a series of unique water features into the courtyard. In addition, recycled building materials will be used, along with daylighting, passive cooling, heat recovery systems and onsite Zipcars.

The 221,500-square-foot project will be located on a 1.73-acre site near Gateway Transit Center at Northeast 99th Avenue and Glisan Street. It is being developed by Glisan Street Developers LLC and is expected to be completed in fall 2010.

The firm project team included principal William Wilson. Other firms involved in the project include civil engineer MGH Associates, structural engineer T.M. Rippey Consulting Engineers, landscape architect GreenWorks PC, sustainability consultant Scott Sinner Consulting, and mechanical and electrical engineer Solarc Architecture & Engineering Inc.

This is similar in construction to what is currently ...

... under construction at 102nd E Burnside. It has underground parking; a first level as a commercial level of concrete (the base) and four or five residential levels. Don't remember the name of the development. I think we complained that the roof would be framed/pitched instead of a more urban (flat) design.

The way it looks during construction, I would say the final design (which has a curved wall at the corner) is going to be more urban. I can hope.

Note that developers are moving into Gateway with multi-purpose designs and are meeting the 2040 Goals!!!

There are lots for sale in parts of Gateway (prime spot in my opinion is NW corner of 102 and Stark, a former car lot) so buyers and sellers are starting to make their moves. At some point, a streetcar line will support higher density close to Mall 205 and the Green Line Station is within walking distance.

Someone (Zifondel?) mentioned the Hospital that was "just built" in Gateway. News for westsiders, that hospital has been there for maybe thirty years. There has been major additions during the last few years (on-going).

i'm glad to see this happening. based on pre-app notices i've very nerdily archived, it looks like, in addition to this project there are about 4-5 others of similar size, either in planning or (possibly, for all i know) under construction: 244 ne 99th, halsey & 105th, 102nd & glisan, 102nd & davis - and maybe The Elements, from the ankrom-moisam website.

UO students hatch plans for Gateway ecodistrict
By Christina Williams
Sustainable Business Oregon

Read the entire article here:
http://www.sustainablebusinessoregon...e_du&ana=e_sbo

Quote:
Five teams of students from the University of Oregon last week presented the results of a semester's worth of work to the team behind the Gateway ecodistrict effort, showing of concepts for a greener, more connected neighborhood.

Gateway, located in east Portland near the intersection of Interstate 84 and I-205, is one of five ecodistrict neighborhoods being nurtured by the Portland Sustainability Institute's pilot ecodistrict project. Ecodistricts are a neighborhoods that develops a comprehensive management strategy for attributes such as energy, water, waste, recycling, green infrastructure and mobility.

Nico Larco, associate professor of architecture at the University of Oregon, worked with the institute to develop an opportunity for an interdisciplinary team of students to look at ecodistricts from an urban design perspective.

The project became the topic of a studio class taught by Larco and Kaarin Knudson, a project manager with Eugene-based Rowell Brokaw Architects and an adjunct professor at UO. The class of 17 split into five student teams with expertise including architecture, landscape architecture and urban planning.

Students started the semester meeting with the ecodistrict's steering committee and experts on the area from SERA Architects and the Portland Development Commission.

"We heard a whole lot of 'We don't want to be the Pearl,'" Larco said.

Portland Infill | East of 205

Hello! I'm new here, so be patient
I live in Gateway and I see a real transformation happening with 3 major developments, one proposed development and a new park. Gateway has such potential that I feel the East side/Gateway should have it's own thread.

Mid County Memo
Glisan Commons undergoes design review


Glisan Commons, a collaborative development by three non-profits planned for Northeast Glisan Street at 99th Avenue, had a Design Advisory — an informal discussion prior to a formal application — with the Portland Design Commission last month. The Commission called for some changes, but generally gave both the project and its design high marks.


The Glisan Commons is a new building slated to occupy the corner of Northeast Glisan at 99th Avenue.

The project is a joint venture by Human Solutions, which provides affordable housing and social services primarily in east Portland; Ride Connection, a transit services provider for the elderly and disabled throughout the city; and REACH Community Development, the city’s largest non-profit, low-income housing provider.

Plans call for a five-story building with 67 units of affordable housing managed by Human Solutions, storage for part of Ride Connection’s fleet of passenger vans and mini-buses, and a smaller building with office and kitchen facilities for the transit service. Phase II of the project calls for 60 units of senior housing (managed by REACH) in a multi-story building above the vehicles........................

Eventually that area is suppose to turn into being another urban district in the city. I think we will see a lot of block by block additions, but overall I think the area is gonna need an urban complex and an active masterplan that is being built for the area to really turn into an urban district.

PARKING IT



For the last two decades the majority of new public parks, trails, and plazas have been built in Portland’s city center, neglecting the other large swaths of the city that also needed them. This sacrifice was part of a grand effort to revitalize a major city’s downtown during a time period of substantial suburban growth. This focus saw the creation of some of Portland’s most favored plazas, Jamison Square and Director Park, and ample lengths of new waterfront pathways including the Vera Katz Eastside Esplanade, the Springwater Corridor, and the South Waterfront Greenway. Today, central Portland is renowned for its livability and accessibility, and the city leaders have taken notice of that success as they turn their heads to the outer ‘other Portland.’ In the current draft of the new Portland Comprehensive Plan, numerous park and trail projects are still being planned for the central areas, like the Green Loop (pdf) and rebuilding Waterfront Park (pdf), but the plan also calls for more immediate action in East Portland. In the next two years Portland Parks & Recreation will build three new parks in underserved Northeast neighborhoods, and start the first phase of the Gateway Green project just east of Rocky Butte.
...continues at Place over Time.

Future off-road bike park Gateway Green acquired by City of Portland



A key step toward making Gateway Green a reality was taken today when Portland City Council voted unanimously to authorize a land transfer from the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT). Portland is now the official owner of the 25 acre property that’s slated to become what Portland Parks & Recreation referred to today as an “off-road biking facility.”

The City of Portland acquired the land from ODOT for $19,300, money they received from developers via System Development Charges (SDCs).

Gateway in 5-7 years will be a very nice neighborhood. It's improved a lot plus they have some key open land next to the gateway max stop that's oozing with potential as well

It seems like it ought to be, but I have to say that the area around the MAX stop has been oozing with potential for a very long time. Like, 20 years.
