Great photos, but to add to the Ankeny Blocks, this isn't a proposal or anything, this was just a sales advertisement form the company who owns all this land on what potentially could be built if any developers want to work with them to build on any of their surface lots.

Awesome for Portland! Thank you for posting Tower Power. I recently just sat through a lecture series from the Portland Bureau of Planning and Sustainability and they are planning/preparing for some more amazing proposals to come to the city this year! Excited to see the transformation of the Center City plan

This things seems to have been under construction for a really long time, not sure what is taking so long. But it looks like things are getting close to wrapping up.

Has there been any more coverage on this? I remember it hitting the press last spring but haven't seen anything of late.

EDIT:

I just saw this over at Next Portland, which is one of the Ankeny Blocks:

Cranes Crowd Portland Skyline as Building Boom Continues

Quote:
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — John Killin pressed the panic button in February amid a multibillion-dollar tsunami of real estate development.

The building frenzy that lit up the Portland-area economy and changed the city irrevocably has depleted the pool of skilled construction workers. In a letter to fellow contractors, Killin warned of a "new normal" of chronic labor shortages.

"There are probably 10,000 open jobs out there," said Killin, executive director of the Associated Wall and Ceiling Contractors of Oregon and Southwest Washington. "We need 800 carpenters, we need about the same number of electricians. And there are 20 more trades."

Nearly a decade after the Great Recession, the long and frustratingly slow recovery has morphed into a barrage of development that by some measures surpasses the mid-2000s housing bubble. The city issued nearly 12,000 buildings permits through the first 10 months of its current fiscal year for a record $2.5 billion in projects, easily eclipsing the previous high of $1.9 billion set the year before.

Interviews with dozens of developers, construction company executives and union officials reveal a boom that includes all real estate categories, from high-end apartments in Portland's urban core to enormous data centers in the eastern Oregon desert. Fueled by strong in-migration and job growth, Portland should remain red-hot in the near-term, they predict.

Twenty-one construction cranes currently dot the metro-area's skyline, the fifth most in the country and more than either San Francisco or New York. The development mania extends north to Seattle, where a nation-leading 64 construction cranes are in action.

"This boom is unprecedented; it's absolutely unlike anything else I've seen in 50 years," said Bob Walsh of Walsh Construction in Portland.

I am very happy for the robust construction boom in Portland, but there is no way the above quote is even remotely accurate.

^ I love how they're planning a food hall as part of that project in a nod to what's there currently. I've been by that food stall lot a few times, and it's very cool. A building is a much better use of that land, but it would be cool to see at least a few of the current vendors in brick and mortar stores in the new food hall if that moves forward.

Construction of a new mixed-use high-rise within Portland’s South Park Blocks will soon reach substantial completion. The Broadway Tower is a 19-story, 260-foot-tall structure rising on a half block at the corner of Southwest Broadway and Clay streets.
