I'm glad they're doing this, but is there no where closer to MAX that could have been zoned this way? I mean, here we have a linear area of land that is 1) far away from the MAX line and 2) runs perpendicular to it anyway. As much as like seeing higher density requirements in the suburbs, this doesn't do much for me.

Beaverton and ScanlanKemperBard Companies complete $22 million combined purchase at the Round
Published: Thursday, May 17, 2012, 2:53 PM Updated: Thursday, May 17, 2012, 4:57 PM
By Dominique Fong, The Oregonian

http://www.oregonlive.com/beaverton/...kemperbar.html

Quote:
The $22 million sale of four buildings at the Round at Beaverton Central has been completed, laying the foundation for an anticipated rebirth of the city's downtown core.

In early April, the city of Beaverton bought the South Office building, commonly known as the Coldwell Banker building, for $8.65 million and approved spending an extra $200,000 for closing costs.

Portland-based ScanlanKemperBard Companies, a real estate equity firm, bought three remaining buildings for $13.25 million in a deal that closed April 27, according to global real estate firm Jones Lang LaSalle, which managed the two transactions...
Quote:
...The public's stake in the Round may grow larger, as officials consider moving City Hall to the Coldwell Banker Building. Feasibility studies evaluated the potential for administrative offices, a municipal court and police department, but officials said nothing has been confirmed...
Quote:
...The city will design and install ground-level parking lots until the market improves, said Don Mazziotti, the city's director of community and economic development.

In the meantime, the city is working with engineering consultant Cardno WRG in Portland to improve the south plaza, Mazziotti said. His department will also support small businesses that have offices on the third floor of the Coldwell Banker building...

Hillsboro planning massive AmberGlen development
POSTED: Monday, May 21, 2012 at 03:16 PM PT
Daily Journal of Commerce BY: Reed Jackson

http://djcoregon.com/news/2012/05/21...n-development/

Quote:
Hillsboro’s suburban skyline could soon become taller.

The city recently approved an ordinance to rezone a Tanasbourne business park and make way for the AmberGlen Community Plan, a 20-year growth strategy expected to produce multiple commercial and residential high-rise buildings.

The 606-acre development planned between 185th and 206th avenues will create more shopping and dining opportunities, but also provide convenient housing options for people working at technology and retail corporations nearby, said Colin Cooper, a planning manager for the city. It also will help Hillsboro handle the influx of residents but remain inside the urban growth boundary...
Quote:
...Approximately 6,000 new medium- to high-density residential units are expected to be built, as well as 3 million square feet of office space and 500,000 square feet of retail. A large park will sit in the middle, while green pathways will be spread throughout to connect the property to Rock and Bronson creeks.

Transportation access will also be a key element of the development; a facility is being planned to incorporate multiple TriMet bus lines and the MAX blue line...
Quote:
...However, at least one high-rise – residential or office – is expected to be built within the next five years, Cooper said.

Revived project will bring two new hotels to Hillsboro
Published: Tuesday, June 12, 2012, 4:21 PM
By Sally Ho, The Oregonian

http://www.oregonlive.com/hillsboro/...bring_two.html

Quote:
HILLSBORO -- The city has limited involvement with the two new hotels coming to Hillsboro, but the developer is no stranger to the scene.

Seattle-based developer, InnVentures, Inc., confirmed they hope to break ground as early as this month on a 4.9-acre plot at Northwest Tanasbourne Drive and Northwest John Olsen Place. The company already operates three other hotels in the city (and one each in Tigard and Portland), including two Marriott properties about a half mile from the site of the new hotels.

The first of the new hotels will be a seven-story, 165-room Embassy Suites and will be built on the northwest corner, according to the land use approval documents. A second hotel will sit adjacent on the northeast side of the land as a four-story, 106-room Hampton Inn and Suites...
Quote:
...The Hampton Inn will be a smaller hotel with a lower price point. The Embassy Suites will be a full-service, long-stay hotel, with a restaurant and meeting rooms. At seven stories, the Embassy Suites will also become the city’s building with the most floors, although it won’t be the tallest. That title will remain with Intel's D1X plant, Cooper said...

I work RIGHT THERE. I guess it's going to be on the lot adjacent to the already developed lots at the intersection of the two roads.

Exciting stuff. Keeping track of this will be a breeze for me.

Yakima Bears agree to Hillsboro's terms for baseball deal

Quote:
“The team and the (Northwest) League have approved the term sheet and all aspects of this project are moving forward,” Willey said at about noon in Tuesday’s online chat. “We don't foresee any issues to progressing to our ultimate goal of playing baseball in June 2013.”

The 20-year offer sheet was approved unanimously by the city on June 5 and the team and league approved it -- without changes -- on June 8, according to city spokeswoman Mary Loftin.

Should we have a looped MAX line to connect Hillsboro to Tigard? Or high-frequency bus service (remember the old "frequent bus" that Trimet touted 8 years ago?)?

Hillsboro Baseball: Evolution of a deal

Published: Thursday, July 12, 2012, 5:24 PM Updated: Thursday, July 12, 2012, 6:12 PM
By Sally Ho, The Oregonian

http://www.oregonlive.com/hillsboro/..._river_default

Quote:
The Oregonian obtained drafts of the negotiated term sheet between the city of Hillsboro and Short Season LLC. Here is a detailed summary and analysis (in italics) of the five drafts that defined the deal for the Yakima Bears' relocation to Hillsboro next season:


Draft 1, April 6, 2012:

STADIUM COSTS: Team to contribute unspecified amount of money to the stadium build - This clause is eliminated in all subsequent drafts

RENT: $150,000 with 3 percent annual increase - It remains throughout negotiations, despite the team hitting back in an email after Draft 4

PRE-DEVELOPMENT COSTS: Team to pay all pre-approved, pre-development expenses, including consulting and legal fees - An unspecified maximum amount for this clause appears in Draft 2 but the clause is eliminated entirely in subsequent drafts

PARKING: City to keep all parking revenue - This clause is amended in drafts 2, 4 and 5, but the city eventually prevails with full control of operations and revenue

TICKETS: Team to pay a $2 per-ticket surcharge to the city - This clause is amended in drafts 3, 4 and 5, moving the city from collecting up to $3, down to just the prevailing $1

PROFIT-SHARING: After the first $250,000 in net revenue, 50-50 profit sharing for game events and 70-30 profit sharing for the city and team, respectively, for non-game team events - Profit sharing for non-game team events is eliminated in Draft 3 and the entire clause disappears in Draft 4 and 5

REPAIRS: Team to pay for 25 percent for capital repairs and maintenance beyond $200,000 - This is changed to $250,000 in Draft 2

POURING RIGHTS: Revenue from the third-party beverage distributor to be split 80-20 between city and team, respectively; Sale of alcohol is an open issue - Non-alcoholic beverages is added in Draft 2 and no mention of alcohol appears again

CONCESSIONS: If the city controls concessions by hiring a third-party operator, the operator will pay the team the net revenue from team events; If the team controls concessions, the team must pay 20 percent of the net revenue to the city – Term is amended in every draft and the city and team agree in Draft 5 to create a separate agreement for concessions


Draft 2, April 19, 2012

PARKING: Amended for city to keep either $2 per vehicle or 50 percent of all revenue (whichever is greater) for team events; Team and city to decide who will operate parking


Draft 3, April 20, 2012

RENT: Amended to a 20 percent rate increase on the 6th, 11th and 16th anniversaries - The increase is changed back to the 3 percent annual in drafts 4 and 5

TICKETS: Amended to a defined $2 surcharge, with $1 to the city and $1 to a capital expenditure fund -- controlled by the city -- for repairs; The fund will cover the team’s portion of repairs beyond $250,000; Beyond the first 100,000 tickets in a season, another $1 surcharge will be allocated to the city - The third dollar surcharge is eliminated in Draft 4; In Draft 5, the surcharge is lowered to $1 and the city-controlled fund is eliminated


Draft 4, May 7, 2012
PARKING: The clause is changed to $3 per vehicle or 50 percent of all revenue (whichever is greater) for team events; the city is to operate parking

In response to this draft, Northwest League President Bob Richmond writes in an email: “...the league members were very clear they will not approve the current revenue lines with the proposed rent increases, parking lot split and ticket surcharge.” Richmond asks if the city will consider taking a percentage of the ticket price, instead of a flat dollar amount. He also insists the team control concessions at the stadium at all times.


Draft 5, June 5, 2012 - This term sheet is approved and is the framework for the official contract. See it here.

RENT: $150,000 with 3 percent annual increase


CONCESSIONS: Team to run concessions at the stadium for the first two years, keeping all profits during game days; City and team will approve a separate agreement for concessions

PARKING: City to keep all parking revenue and operate parking

TICKETS: Team to pay a $1 ticket surcharge

Although terms were introduced, the prevailing term sheet has the team free from a financial contribution to the stadium, the pre-development costs and any profit-sharing with the city.

Full terms of the concessions and naming rights remain unseen, because the approved term sheet calls for a separately negotiated agreement for those terms. The pouring rights clause disappears but could reappear as part of the separate concessions agreement.

"Living Green" Apartments

These apartments are looking even more uglier as construction continues. A hodgepodge of too many paint colors, brick colors, and wood siding styles. Yuck.

Whoa. 800 parking spaces for 367 units. At least the article states they're supposed to be hidden, but damn.
