Think my jaw just hit the floor.

Is this in Portland? We're talking about the same Hillsdale, right?

I wonder if they actually want towers to be built in the area, or just 'taller' midrises. Any thoughts?

I don’t see tall tower will fit any of the location unless long-term redevelopment project will apply to it.

that whole bowl of mess with parking garages, fast food, and the grocery store could be bulldozed and redeveloped.

that's absolutely awesome that the neighborhood group is knocking on city hall to ask for more density and height...though i am sure by tall they mean 4 stories or less. still, it'd be great to see Hillsdale built out more and especially that area of Barbur by the Fred Meyer. Now lets run light rail through it to Tigard to kick start things

Does this mean continuing development along Capitol Hwy, Beverton-Hillsdale Hwy, and Bertha Blvd? I hope so.

I wish they would do the same thing for the Safeway on Hawthorne.

nice to see this idea of small urban cores throughout the city is actually happening, or at least being thought about in a positive manner.

Anyone read the inPortland section from last thursday? Dense townhome/rowhouse project almost finished near Multnomah Village just off Barbur, a couple miles further south from the Freddie's. Cool thing is that they daylit a creek, and the design for the homes are pretty modern, too. The neighborhood opposed the plan, even though it was built - because of 'too much density isn't appropriate for the neighborhood.'

To me much of SW Portland in this area is filled with yuppies who think they live in a suburban gated community where only the wealthy should live. Really makes me sick when they talk about how everyone needs to garden and purchase $10,000 home entertainment systems for their homes. Oh yea, and they all pretend to be green while driving SUV's.

yes, it should work. And since I just got my digital camera again, I volunteer to go out and try to photograph as many of these projects as possible in december.

I used to work across the street from that triangular lot - housing there will be a great addition to the neighborhood.
