The permit status is still "under review". Im not sure what the even means anymore. I've got a reservation there and 10k bucks tied up into it. The last we spoke with the developer was in January when he said they were supposed to break ground on the structures by April. Looking at Portland maps, the permits do seem do be coming along so im not sure what the scoop is. It seems like were waiting on the city of Portland at this point and the developer has submitted everything he needs. I guess their permit backlog is probably stupidly long at this point. Maybe the city should stop accepting permits for a bit so they can catch up with the current backlog. Im fairly patient but this project is starting to piss me off and make me consider looking for another townhouse. The current developer took over the project from the original developer in 2013 but seemed to run into some snags along the way. The only thing I can think is the development is townhomes so maybe they are treating each unit as a separate approval since they are all individual taxlots....I dunno. It seems goofy that the developer is taking so long. Its probably a mix of two things, he hasn't built an urban multifamily project in the city of Portland before, annnnnnd, its the city of Portland were talking about. the city that works you over! time will tell....

@pdxtex - I've been watching that development as my best friend lives very nearby. This project has been lagging since early 2014 - nearly three years. It's frustrating living around a dormant construction site...at first the rumor was that it was taking so long because of the land division for individual townhome lots. Okay, but that plat has long been recorded. My friend had been looking in to it and stumbled onto what would probably be a typical rumor at this point of developer insolvency and financing issues. It's doubtful at this point that this is entirely due to permitting issues.

boy I hope that's not the case. construction is a tough gig but i think he may have bitten off a bit more than he can chew. might need to start looking elsewhere. thanks for the heads up. also what was the source of the rumor? inquiring minds want to know....me!!

@pdxtex - I think it's strictly an unsubstantiated rumor based on seeing no progress for so long...pure speculation. My guess is that if true, the developer would have alerted those that put deposits down that the project wasn't moving forward. Given that you have a deposit in place, I would certainly inquire about the status.

Preselling a bunch of units and then having delays in getting a project going - all while values and construction costs are going up can be a very costly mistake. For example, if he agreed to sell you a townhome for $350k a while ago, that same townhome could now have a market value of $400k. So, he's selling for below market while his costs have increased at the same time. Not a good position to be in. I'm not saying that that's what's happening here but it's worth a phone call to see if everything is on track.

slow permitting and understaffed city government sounds like a national problem....

Construction all wrapped up on a project uniting old and new in Westmoreland (Photos)



Portland's Waechter Architects had a unique challenge put before it: Design something new and contemporary right next to a 1929 Spanish Colonial Revival-style building in Westmoreland — and make it look like it's just where it's supposed to be.

The result is Milwaukie Way, a slim, two-building infill project at 6637 S.E. Milwaukie Ave. right next to that 1929 building, which was once a funeral home and currently houses Relish Gastropub. The two new buildings, which offer ground-level retail space and second-story offices, stretch back from Milwaukie Avenue in an L shape that wraps around the backside of the Spanish building.

Mike's Drive-In, Longtime Sellwood Burger Joint, May be Demolished for Apartments



Old-school burger restaurant, Mike's Drive-In in Sellwood, is in the planning stages to be demolished and replaced with a 78 unit apartment building. Mike's small local franchise started in 1971, and now has three locations: Milwaukie, Oregon City, and the Sellwood restaurant which opened in 1986, replacing what was then an A&W drive-in. Famous for their burgers and milkshakes, the Sellwood location does a brisk business, especially in the summertime—however, according to the owners addressing closure rumors on Facebook, they could be forced to shut down as soon as January 2017. From Mike's:

It turned out to be a cool little development, though last time I was over there, it was mostly vacant still, so I imagine once it fills with businesses, it will be a great addition to that neighborhood.
