Damn. For how fast they're moving, this whole project looks very well-considered. I'll be happily surprised if it moves forward in this cycle. I wonder if they're betting that Trump's steel-doubling tariffs will be short-lived.

We should start a betting pool or something. I'd give about a 20% chance that this one, 11W, the Art Tower, and the Press Blocks all move forward in this cycle as proposed. Any other guesses? Anyone have inside info about any of the four? I was told by a dependable source that the Press Blocks were still a 'go', but the permit wait was interminable -- that was about 2 months ago. I'm really curious how these developers account for the insane delay in permitting when they're budgeting.

BPM Real Estate Group managed to pull off Pearl West and then Broadway Tower with amazing finesse. If anyone can bring this big of a downtown Portland development out of the ground, especially given the uncertainty in regards to material prices and economic headwinds, it will be them. I'm rooting for it!

The Tower half on the west should be more clearly separated from or distinguished from the Cascading half on the east. Otherwise it feels very forced. Free the Forms!

This looks fantastic. I hope the realities of Trumpism don't crush it.

The drawing presentation is amazing, I still wish this block would have been the new tallest building in Portland, but what they are proposing is a great proposal. Everything seems to be very well thought out, it even makes me wish the city would close down that section of 9th to cars so that the food court portion could spill out into that street. As for working years in valet, I can definitely say they hotel portion is gonna suck for their valets. That drop off area is absolutely worthless and will probably back up regularly.

Renderings of proposed Block 216 hotel, office and residential building

BPM Real Estate Group has proposed to build a 35-story, 456-foot tower at 900 S.W. Washington St. in Portland. The developer has said the tower would include Portland's first five-star hotel, as well as apartments and offices. Plans also call for a ground-floor food hall. The site currently hosts part of the city's largest congregation of food carts.

...continues at the Oregonian.

O would that this team had done the Y(uck)ard.

I'm looking forward to this addition to Portland.

Hopefully the carts can find a location nearby.
