    201 Federal Street | Residential Tower | Portland

    Nice response by you in the Portland Press Herald this morning Max. The other fact that is always overlooked is the total height which will actually be 205' to the top of the mechanical penthouse. The roofline height (190') can be misleading but I understand why the developer is focusing on...

    Time & Temp Building | Parking Garage Redevelopment | Portland

    After the Westin makeover of the Eastland Hotel years ago, this the most important renovation project in downtown Portland and will add vitality to the Monument Square area. The Masonic Building is the next aging structure that needs some serious attention in my opinion.

    201 Federal Street | Residential Tower | Portland

    My uneasiness with heights would not permit me to be a tower crane operator and it looks more unstable the higher it gets. The crane being used to put it together is no joke either and is transported on the back of a flatbed!

    Portland Foreside | 58 Fore Street | Portland

    They could at least stain or paint the wood slats to match the window trim and maybe they will in the future.

    The Portland Ocean Gateway Terminal would be able to accommodate the Oasis of the Seas. The pier can handle a vessel 1200' in length and the Oasis class ships measure 1181' with an impressive draft of only 30 feet for such a large ship. The mega berth has been dredged for 54 feet and the...

    Took this photo in 2018 and I actually miss some of these impressive cruise ships being tied up on the Portland waterfront. Hopefully they'll return in the near future.

    Maine - General Photo Thread

    After reviewing some of Maine Imaging's more recent aerials, the ones you mentioned with Portland Headlight in the foreground, downtown Portland in the center with Mt Washington in the background are stunning. That vantage point really sums up Greater Portland perfectly!

    I agree TC, the photos in PWM's baggage claim are getting a little dated. I will run the idea of replacing them through the Jetport director once 201 Federal Street is added to the skyline. This particular shot would look great on the overhang as you enter baggage claim.

    201 Federal Street | Residential Tower | Portland

    I agree Daniel, the northeast views tend to expose all of the vacant lots bounded by Spring, Center and lower Fore Streets.

    Great photo and that is our Portland's version of Mt Hood in the background!

    201 Federal Street | Residential Tower | Portland

    Old photo from around 1990 with BIW in the foreground. I think this angle and height shows the downtown massing very well and this same view will be even more impressive once the new tower is completed. Portland's urban density and it's cluster of mid rise towers are remarkable for a city just...
