Yes, all of those are from the week January 23rd-29th. When BDS publishes the Metro Reports from this past week there will probably be a few projects submitted on the very last days of January... and then nothing.

Retirees develop PDX Commons on Belmont



A four-story contemporary condominium building is going up along Southeast Belmont Street with a unique twist on who is doing the developing.

"The thing that's so different about this project is it's being built by the people who are going to live in it," said project founder Jim Swenson. "From the beginning, three families started in 2013 and we've been building out a membership."

So far, 25 households have been recruited and only two units are left available, but are likely to be committed before the project is finished mid-June.
...continues at the Business Tribune.

Housing Bureau Picks Property to Buy With Airbnb Money

Three years ago, Portland City Hall approved a tax on Airbnbs and other short term rentals to spend on affordable housing. Now the Portland Housing Bureau has selected its first purchase using short-term rental tax dollars: a 50,000-square-foot property at 3000 SE Powell Blvd. with a price tag of $3.72 million. The land could be developed into as many as 300 units of affordable housing using funds from another pot of money: a chunk of the $258 million housing bond. (The city is still picking those projects.)
...via the Willamette Week.

There's zero chance the city can replace as many units as Airbnb is taking away.

Zero.

Not necessarily. More study needed. For example, during the summer I am an Airbnb host of a guest suite in my basement. Believe me, I am not withholding housing from the rental market. There are a lot of Portland Airbnb hosts that are doing the same.

It's hard to measure. There are a lot of hotel projects in the works at the moment. If air bnb policy was more leanient, there would be more of them and maybe a few of those hotel projects would be housing instead. may or may not be true, but who knows?

Indeed it is, but all you have to do is start clicking through listings and you'll see many that have review after review for July 2017, July 2017, July 2017, July 2017, June 2017, June 2017, June 2017, June 2017, June 2017, June 2017, June 2017, June 2017, June 2017, June 2017, June 2017... etc etc etc... which means there's no way somebody actually lives there.

That still doesn't mean it would be a rental if it wasn't an AirBnB unit. I have a friend that has a bedroom in his house that is available bedroom on AirBnB, but he has never had any plans to rent out the room as a rental because it is basically his guest room.

How so? I rent out my basement to airbnb guests almost nonstop. I live in the upstairs. I hear other airbnb hosts are super busy this summer as well. If not airbnb, I wouldn't bother with a renter. I did that for 9 years.

My sister and I own our childhood home in NE which we inherited when our mom passed away last week. We now rent that house out.

She lives in California, I live in Norway. We really want to maintain ties to the Portland area and want a place to call our own.

Our solution is to build an ADU where the unused garage currently stands. We'll probably use it 6 weeks out of the year and rent it out the rest of the time through airbnb or to students who won't use it in the summer. For people traveling with children short term rentals are a godsend since you can get a couple of bedrooms, a living room and a kitchen for a heck of a lot less than it costs to rent a suite in some sterile hotel. We've done it many times in many cities. It's nice to live in a neighborhood and not a business district and to live in a dwelling with some soul.

If it weren't for airbnb we wouldn't even consider it and the bank obviously wouldn't lend us money to build it. We're not big scale investors but this project will give work to both architects and other tradespeople.

My point is that the short term rental market can be very nuanced and isn't necessarily taking away units from other uses.

Are there future plans for residential buildings around the Clinton St/SE 12th MAX station? I did some Orange Line exploring this weekend and couldn't help but think that station is a little useless at the time being. Residents on the north side of the tracks are prevented from accessing the station if a freight train is going by and the land in the immediate vicinity to the south of the station is a fire fighting training facility and run down industrial buildings. There is certainly a lot of potential there though.

No idea about any specific plans for housing over there but I do know that the city is planning to rebuild the ped bridge (the one that was demolished) from the neighborhood on the N side of tracks over to the station vicinity.

The current zoning is industrial and doesn't allow housing. However the City adopted new zoning that will allow housing and include the site in the central city plan - that takes effect next year. TriMet is replacing the ped bridge that was removed after the feds allowed them to use leftover money from the Orange Line project.

Good to know! That could be a pretty nice little transit oriented development in the future.

Forgot to mention that there's another ingredient for success at this triangle - two major property owners. One is the City fire bureau and the other is a private entity, Stacy and Witbeck. Stacy and Witbeck was the prime contractor for the Orange Line project and their Portland office is very close to this site. I could easily see a deal happen here between SW and the City to see a complete redevelopment. There are a few other property owners on the edge, but with relatively small pieces of the puzzle.
