I raise a pint to Jerry Fechter and all his future ventures. He's a hell of a guy and a fine soccer player for an old man.

Kick Axe!

New McMenamins development in NE:

McMenamins proposes boutique hotel in North Portland

McMenamins is considering a plan to convert a historic Masonic lodge in North Portland into a 46-room boutique hotel. Mount Hood Masonic Lodge No. 157, located on North Commercial Avenue, has been vacant since a 1982 arson wreaked havoc on the interior. (Photo by Sam Tenney/DJC)

McMenamins is looking into the possibility of turning an old, burned-out Masonic lodge in North Portland into a boutique hotel.

Mount Hood Masonic Lodge No. 157 is at 5308 N. Commercial Ave., adjacent to McMenamins’ Chapel Pub. The company envisions joining the two properties by converting the paved parking lot between them into a lush garden with an outdoor spa, a garden bar and a sitting area.

Mario Espinosa, an architect with Ankrom Moisan Associated Architects, said the concept is subject to design review and public input. A pre-application conference is scheduled for April 11.

The 16,245-square-foot building was constructed in 1923 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It was designed by Sutton and Whitney, a once notable Oregon architecture firm, and stands out in the neighborhood with a Colonial Revival-style brick facade. And like other McMenamins properties, its history has flair.

The 6-story project along Lovejoy between 23rd and Good Sam looks to be underway; it's all fenced off.

The roof looks very suburban.

The whole thing looks suburban - at this stage anyway - but it's replacing a surface parking lot... so... perhaps the bad is outweighed by the good? It's in such an odd spot, with the 405 on one side and a spanish style building on the other (what IS that building?), not to mention the Cathedral School across the street. What an odd mishmash.

That's almost as bad as the project in Sellwood at 13th and Marion. I've got a picture of it somewhere I'll dig up, but it looks like they were both bought from the same mail order catalog.

I agree, it does look suburban. I was more excited to see it going up before the pitched roof came along. But hey, it beats a surface parking lot.

That spanish-style building I think just holds some businesses like a yoga school... maybe someone's house years ago.

The building next door used to be a funeral home and was converted into a Spa several years ago prior to the recession and has since gone out of business. Don't know if anything has moved in to take its place.

The site with the new building was supposed to have a 10+ story building on it at one point (I saw some preliminary stuff for it somewhere once). But the recession claimed that one as well, looks like they scrapped that idea and went a lot shorter, another lost oppurtunity.

Wasn't that called "The Seven"?

Eco_jt: that seems like a dangerous idea. I think that it could be stopped by existing developments, but it's not a bad idea.

????

A dangerous idea, but not a bad idea? I don't understand what you're trying to say. How is it dangerous? And how would "existing developments" stop it?

Yeah what are these existing developments? Those buildings are proposed on two empty lots to the southwest of an existing residential building.
