I like these buildings from the south and west. They have some pleasant angles. Not sure yet from the east. I hope any future buildings on the Albers parking lot provide some serious contrast -- I'm glad we didn't get four in a row.
Yes, nice pics castillonis...I honestly feel that if every newer building in portland were 3-4 times taller they would look sooo much better. Everything is so squatty. I am liking how the waterfront pearl is turning out, the glass is that light blue tint that reminds me of vancouver...they could also be 5-6 times taller too.
god it's taking this project FOR EVER to finish up. they started work on this in summer of 2005. is anything actually happening on the site? it seems like it's taken months just to cover up all the green.
Have you guys noticed that the townhouses on the northern end of Riverscape Townhomes seem to have also stalled on the facade? I haven't been down there, but from the freemont bridge you can see the green insulation stuff on those townhomes as well.
I also biked down to Riverscape and, while those half-finished townhomes looked like they hadn't been touched in weeks, they've opened up the area around the new building (I hesitate to call it a tower) and appear to be installing railings on the old dock that is featured prominently in the renderings. I wonder if the marina will also happen.
