    Pictures taken today while walking around. Really making the most of this lot and nicely illustrating the value of having minimal or no set back requirements.

    I tend to bike The S. Portland - Saco sections of the Eastern Trail most often but am always excited to see steps taken to expand the Eastern Trail. Thought others might be interested in this public meeting hosted by MDOT. On a related note, I love the energy Casco Bay Trail Alliance has...

    This would sit better with me if they weren’t relying on a bond issue. Because they are, it’s hard not consider that outside of a few major US cities, this industry has declined for 20+ years. Numerous Brookings Institute reports reached this conclusion as did a recent review by City Observatory...

    There are a couple here along with a good write up of the project. Notably, a second similarly angular structure will be constructed next to this one.

    Thanks for the links, nicanbot. I like how all proposals provide a pedestrian connection to Transit St to the east while embracing the pedestrian bridge to the west. Each proposal includes ground floor retail, which is great, and attempts to activate the outdoor space. I also like that the Eden...

    Not a huge fan of the taupe but I like the ginkgo leaf design. Very cool that they’re using slate.

    Roux Institute Campus Development | Portland

    This is great news for Portland and will be fun to watch develop over the next several years. The renderings will likely change a dozen times prior to anything being built. Hopefully we will get some great looking structures. I'm also very curious about the public space, specifically the route...

    This post a million times. Most college sports programs are not profitable. This map is a little old but should be a point of pride for Maine. As someone who grew up in a city and state obsessed with college basketball, I find the lack of emphasis on, and public funding of, college sports...

    Photos depict progress on the Citizen at Union and Pleasant and the Tontine Mall at Maine and School. The latter is an especially cool project as it added two stories of residential to an existing structure.

    Portland Passenger Rail

    Article in the Press Herald yesterday about approval of an $800k Gorham-Westbrook-Portland rapid transit study. This is the highest priority corridor ID’ed in the Transit Tomorrow study linked to in post 62 above so it’s great to see movement on this already...
