Oh, I'm quite sure you're right. But the "not enough parking" argument is just so common, and hardly ever seems to be challenged.

The project is simply in the proof of concept stage, and the design shown to neighbors is little more than a simple box that is likely to change throughout the process (if it ever gets off the ground). Part of the lot is owned by Tri-met, and the developer would need rights to that part before developing the project. Yes, there are bound to be NIMBYs who do not want anything blocking their view, taking up their on-street parking spaces, etc. But my impression of the Arbor Vista comments, and my discussions with its condo chair is that they just want the project to be a good one. Problem is, every one has a different idea of what is "good."

Goose Hollow News

140-unit apartment complex planned for Goose Hollow
POSTED: Wednesday, December 14, 2011 at 10:35 AM PT
Daily Journal of Commerce
BY: Lee Fehrenbacher

The developers of the 179-unit apartment complex, Savier Flats, which began construction this month in Northwest Portland, is preparing to double down on their downtown building activities.

Mill Creek Residential Trust is in the early planning stages for a new 140-unit, 143,833-square-foot apartment complex at 2040 S.W. Jefferson St., in the Goose Hollow neighborhood. The building will have six stories above ground and three stories of basement parking.

Sam Rodriguez, vice president of development for Mill Creek, said it is a prime location for such a project.

“It’s in Goose Hollow and we’re looking for properties in markets that haven’t had much development of new apartments,” Rodriguez said. “It’s obviously a very old neighborhood with a tradition of apartment living, it’s close to the core and we believe that right now that’s the most advantageous market that we can be in.”

Rodriguez said Mill Creek plans to market the building to the young professional crowd between the ages of 25 and 35 and is planning the project from a transit-oriented perspective. Located directly across from the MAX light rail blue line, the property will offer residents easy access to the suburbs and downtown, he said.

“If it’s an Intel employee, they can be to work in 20 minutes on the train,” he said. “If it’s downtown, it’s a highly walk-able site.”

While Mill Creek has not yet drafted a firm design for the building, Rodriguez said the majority of it (roughly 92 percent) will be one-bedroom units averaging 700 square feet in size, with the remainder being two-bedroom suites. They plan to market the units for approximately $2 per square foot.

Rodriguez said they also plan to get the building a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design rating, but they have not yet decided to what extent.

One detail that could potentially delay the planning process is that a portion of the land to be developed is owned by transit agency TriMet.

Rodriguez said the developers are currently in negotiations to purchase this property but that because it is public land, it is subject to the public notification and hearing process. Rodriguez said, however, that initial responses from residents in the Goose Hollow neighborhood had been positive and that developers hope to have final approval from TriMet by February 2012.

If all goes as planned, Mill Creek hopes to begin full design of the building by January 2012 and to send the project out to bid for subcontractor trades by the spring or summer. Rodriguez said they are aiming to break ground by November and that construction will last 17 to 18 months.

The next immediate phase in the planning process will be a pre-application conference, which the project architect, Portland-based Vallaster & Corl Architects, has scheduled for Jan. 4.

Awesome about the Goose Hollow apartments, I have always wanted to see that parking lot developed.

That really is good news for Goose Hollow! It's funny how their image shows they're already thinking ugly design even before actually designing anything... but then again, it's not exactly going to be next to a beauty, so it'll fit right in almost no matter how ugly it ends up being. And who knows... they could surprise us by turning that concept into something quite nice. One never knows! It'll be great to see that parking lot developed into housing.

Yeah, the design is fairly generic, plus being a sketchup rendering, it could look like anything for a final built building. Also, this is the side facing the small street which most people would never see, it is the side facing the MAX that I am really curious about.

Lincoln High School plans to develop housing with help from URA money
POSTED: Tuesday, May 8, 2012 at 02:34 PM PT
BY: Reed Jackson, Daily Journal of Commerce

The primary focus of the URA would be Portland State University. However, the URA also would encompass a considerable amount of land around PSU; Lincoln High School, in fact, could gain $10 million from it.

Peyton Chapman, Lincoln’s principal, said the URA could benefit the school’s long-term plan to build a new facility, 1,682 workforce housing units and a large parking garage. Chapman recognizes that a number of bonds would have to be passed for the plan that could cost $130 million; however, she said the URA is necessary to establish essential partnerships.

“The way state funding is, you have to have these partnerships,” Chapman said. “We need to link together with PSU and OHSU the same way Roosevelt (High School) is linked to Concordia (University) and Jefferson (High School) is linked to (Portland Community College). If the URA can attract $50 million more from partners, then that would be well worth it.”

First proposed by Lincoln’s Long-Term Development Committee in 2009, the plan calls for creating a 21st-century superblock, where residents can live and learn in the same neighborhood. A report by the committee lays out three concepts, with the “most preferred” being the one to redevelop the school’s 11-acre plot near the heart of downtown.

Chapman said the structures proposed in the plan could be used by other schools and area businesses. For example, the proposed two-story parking structure could be used by PGE Park and the Multnomah Athletic Club. Or the 1,682 workforce housing units could be used by PSU students and faculty.

In that same permit report there's something about a new 6-story building on the block south of the MAC parking garage (used to be full of victorian houses until the MAC tore them down about 10 years ago). SW 19th/Main.

The MAC owns that block and sought an RFP with a developer to develop additional parking for MAC members. The proposal is to give the block to a developer for new apartments in exchange for 225 parking spots (they better be buried!) and 15 overnight hotel spaces (many older athletic clubs have overnight accomodations for its members and guests -- the MAC does not have this). While current zoning allows parking for residents of the apartments, it does not yet allow additional parking dedicated for an adjacent corporate entity (e.g. the MAC) -- thus the needed zoning change. The NW Examiner story (page 21) is here:

MAC plans garage/apartment building

A long vacant block on the southern edge of the Multnomah Athletic Club campus will become a shared-use parking structure and 200-unit apartment building.

The club has signed an agreement with Sam Rodriguez of Mill Creek Residential Trust to develop Block 7, bounded by Southwest 19th, 20th, Madison and Main streets. MAC General Manager Norm Rich said the project is motivated largely by demand for more parking for club members.

“I just get pounded on a regular basis on parking,” said Rich, noting that the club’s board of directors has run out of patience with the ongoing problem.

The six-story building will have three parking levels, at least one of them underground. In addition to one level of parking for apartment residents, 225 stalls on two levels will be devoted to MAC users. There will also be about 15 hotel rooms for MAC visitors.

Due to what would be considered commercial parking, a zone change will be required, said Rich, a process that could take a year.

He said it would be good for the neighborhood because it will relieve on-street parking demand and traffic congestion.

There's a rendering of it on page 23 of the current NW Examiner.

Also in the current issue of the NW Examiner, just for a change: something about parking.

I know, I know. The Examiner is occasionally interesting, but too often it boils down to Classen's lifelong vendetta against Singer.

Not a bad building. Definitely YES to more wood and less pasty green. One thing that did get under my skin, though, is on the first plan which flags a "pocket park" in the SE corner of the site. looking at the following renderings and plans all I see is a landscape area and a few benches at the sidewalk. hope the neighborhood and City are not falling for that.

I like this building, and how it loads up the urban edge.

11-story apartment building proposed in Goose Hollow

A group of investors has proposed an 11-story, 158-unit apartment building near Lincoln High School in Portland's Goose Hollow neighborhood.

Portland LEEDS Living LLC has asked to meet with city staff to discuss the possible project in an early step of the development process. The quarter-block site at 1500 S.W. Taylor St. is currently a parking lot and a single-family house converted for use as an office.

Project architect Barry Smith said the plans call for studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments, all to be rented at market rates. The units would be smaller than usual, but not micro-apartments, Smith said.

...

The development, called Lincoln Place Apartments, would include 90 parking spaces using a mechanical car-stacking system. Although described in the proposal as "commercial space," the ground floor would be used for tenant amenities.
