Better than a Firestone....the design is pretty good overall, though I wish it was taller....not like tower tall, just taller than the AT&T building so it could offer some cool urban city views to the upper floors.

If that isn't the best example of Portland's old and new, then I don't know what is. Smart of the Dandy Warhols for buying a warehouse building in the Pearl before it was the cool thing to do.

Staff Report for 815 W Burnside, which recommends approval. If it's approved on Thursday it will be the first project subject to the Inclusionary Zoning regulations to be approved by the Design or Landmarks Commission.

You're lamenting the loss of the Firestone on W. Burnside? Do you even know which site is being discussed? How can the current incompatible use and forgettable building be considered Olde Portland?

DMH, easy now. I read Justrmor's post to mean that he is glad to see parking lots, one story strip malls and suburban-style tire shops leaving the downtown core in favor of high density uses . . .

I'm more than happy to lament the loss of this gritty, grimy, ugly blue-collar downtown shop. To be replaced with what... another cheap, bland Modera-esque apartment building containing yet one more coffee shop, art gallery, overpriced donut shop or Thai/Nordic fusion restaurant?! Guess we might always have the bearing shop on Everett, that building and its tradesmen preserved as some sort of historical artifact to a time when a brick building was actually made out of bricks. Geez I must be getting old.

This evolution is of course inevitable. High-density is a good thing. Not sure what an "urban" tire shop looks like... there's still the Les Schwab on NW 19th so I suppose downtowner's don't have to drive to Beaverton to get their air pressure checked. These old buildings and their blue-collar workers (as opposed to old buildings that have been remodeled to house creatives - of which I am one - or tech start-ups) are part of what made the Pearl such an interesting and unique area. That contrast between the old and new, the incorporation of both into the fabric of the city. Going fast.

It was a part of Ye'Olde Portland where they use to replace wooden wheels and put new horseshoes on your horse. The good old days of Portland.

Firestone

I will say that these Firestone guys are awesome and honest and they work their butts off to deliver. They were working on my car and when it was going to be done a little too late to pick my son up from school, they drove me to pick my him up! When we got back the car was cleaned and detailed beyond what is necessary for new brakes and tires.
When I sold that car and the buyer wanted to take it somewhere, they took it here by chance and they told them they already knew the car in and out and told the buyer what great care i (they) gave it!
