    Canal Plaza Tower | Portland

    Anything on the peninsula should be fair game if it is next to old Port. I really like the rendering.

    Worcester Ballpark & Redev

    Yes, but New England is a different/unique when it comes to minor league sports, both Portland, Lowell, and Pawtucket rank at the top/near the top of their leagues in attendance. I am guessing they will be able to get an extra 1-2k with the lawn seats/standing room.

    Worcester Ballpark & Redev

    I would be surprised if the "Woo Sox" don't sell out most of their home games when they move to Worcester. I am curious if this stadium can have soccer matches or football games too during the off season. Maybe Worcester can now lure the Revolution too.

    Worcester Ballpark & Redev

    I love the look of this stadium so far. My main concern is why the capacity is only 10k?? Same capacity as McCoy stadium. I was thinking they could have maybe had 12-15k for seating as I am sure tickets are going to be popular for at least the first 10 years of Polar Park. Just seems very short...

    Portland, ME - New Construction Continued

    Quite disappointing in the height of these buildings on Fore street. Too bad there will not be any high rise (10 plus stories) on this site. The culture in urban Maine is terrified of anything with height. This project has tons of potential but the anti-development groups have city hall and...

    Worcester Developments

    Please note when looking at a cities square miles that you don't include water. Boston is 49 sq miles of land (roughly the same land area as San Fran) and Portland Maine is only 21 sq miles of land. Worcester is compact, tons of triple Decker's and row houses, the city of seven hills, very...

    Portland, ME - New Construction Continued

    I agree with you guys. I was in Lubbock Texas and the population is about 200k. But the downtown commerce wasn't even close to Portland, more like downtown Brattleboro with a few 15-25 stories buildings. Plus the culture of west Texas is fairly blah. Buddy Holly museum is nice but the rest...

    Thompson's Point, Portland

    Regarding Thompson's Point, is the arena/event center part of this dead? I am still curious if a new arena will get built in Portland in the next 10 years. I know the city renovated the CCC a few years back. But that was a waste of money if you ask me. Build 10-12k seat arena with all the bells...

    Has anyone heard any news of a Hadlock field major renovation? Seems that it is time for a major over haul. Portland would be perfect for a waterfront ball park too.

    Worcester Developments

    I really hope this stadium is bigger capacity than McCoy stadium. I think 12-15k capacity makes sense. I know they are saying 10k but that seems too small for a AAA team.

    Portland, ME - New Construction Continued

    Has anyone heard any news about the 20 story skyscraper/high rise that was rumored for the old port? I hope it gets done! I drove through Portland a month ago and was impressed with all the construction going on. I live in Manchester, NH and Portland feels much more urban than Manchvegas. What...

    Worcester Developments

    From this angle the stadium looks bigger than 10,000@ capacity. I am sure they could build it closer to 15,000. McCoy already holds 10k. Just seems short sighted to build another 10k stadium. This is exciting news for Worcester regardless. Go WooSox!

    Portland, ME - New Construction Continued

    Yes, these wimps are to blame for rents being so high in Portland. I hope they scrap the 6 story apartments part of the midtown project and come back with 14 story towers that are not some brick looking fortress. This would help calm the rental demand. But the antidevelopment folks would lose...

    Portland Jetport

    I heard the reason why it is called "Jetport" instead of Airport was not to confuse customers with Portland Oregon. Regardless it makes for a unique name for a terrific small Airport.

    Portland, ME - New Construction Continued

    To my understanding many "out of staters" want to build their McMansion or luxury condo then stop any development that could block their self entitled view/Vista of the peninsula. This mentality will lead to Portland being similar to San Francisco where only the 1% can afford it. And no, I...

    Portland, ME - New Construction Continued

    Hopefully the 23 story building near the Arena gets approved. Portland has so much potential to become a mid sized city, but these out of staters are creating this anti development culture.
