    Time & Temp Building | Parking Garage Redevelopment | Portland

    Yeah, disappointing it's not taller, but at 7 stories on top of a 2.5 story garage and built to modern standards, you're probably looking at something like this in terms of massing if it fills the whole lot (this might be a tad taller than actual expected):

    Rock Row (née The Ridge, née Dirigo Plaza) | Westbrook, ME

    Pure speculation, but my best guess is that the building shown here in the video is this initial planned residential component. If I recall correctly from other site maps they've provided, the interior of the building will likely be a hidden parking garage. I think the building just to the left...

    Rock Row (née The Ridge, née Dirigo Plaza) | Westbrook, ME

    Well, they did say numerous times while going through the approval process that it was a temporary "proof of concept," so I can see why they decided not to invest too much. As it is, the venue still cost them about $5 million to build out. I think once they prove the concept and move the venue...

    Rock Row (née The Ridge, née Dirigo Plaza) | Westbrook, ME

    Residential component being added to the development. Seems under-scale for their vision at only four stories. http://www.westbrookmaine.com/civicalerts.aspx?AID=154

    113 West Commercial Street | VA Outpatient Clinic | Portland

    I recall renderings of this popping up in another thread. I still think this looks like a luxury car dealership.

    Cool watching the time lapse and seeing 100 Fore Street go up so quickly in the background

    Shipyard Brewery | Cambria Suites | 86 Newbury Street | Covetrus | 12 Mountfort Street | Portland

    I have to openly wonder if Covetrus survives this downturn. They were already struggling heading into it, and I know Idexx, which is a light-years stronger company financially and in the same industry, is starting to struggle.

    Covid-19 and Portland's Development Future

    I see this crisis resulting in a decrease in demand for Class A office, not just here but in a lot of cities. Nearly all professional companies that occupy Class A office space have shifted to work-from-home. Once this crisis is over, many companies could be more open to allowing employees to...

    Covid-19 and Portland's Development Future

    I'm on the same page as you Max. I'd rather see that building be a mix of office and residential than a hotel.

    Covid-19 and Portland's Development Future

    I don't know if these proposals will be outright ditched, but I can see most developers hitting the pause button. Financing is going to be hard to come by for a little while, especially if there is any commercial/office or hotel aspect attached to it. With most everyone working from home...

    Portland, ME - New Construction Continued

    Hmmm, interesting. I can't see the city allowing them to build in Bayside. It would definitely have to be a smaller, more urban type store. Other than St. John's Street area, as you mentioned, the only other potential locations I can think of would be the parking lot in front of the Portland...

    170 Fore Street | Portland

    Is that top floor going to be taller than 20 Thames?

    I can hear the West End NIMBYs already crapping their pants from here in Westbrook

    Cold Storage Facility Redev | 40 West Commercial Street | Portland

    Even though Phin Sprague's new buildings down there are probably 50'+ tall

    Time & Temp Building | Parking Garage Redevelopment | Portland

    Agreed, though I think it's due more to the projecting cornice softening the overhang than actual inward movement of the walls. I have to imagine there are structural limits to how much they can go inward there aside from going thinner with the facade. I think we accomplish the same thing by...
