That crazy. The prices in Portland are insane.....and you are right. You can find condos in much better locations/climates for half the price!One of the 7th floor units is listed for $3.95 million. I'd do half of that for something else in Portland, and take the reminder for a sweet condo in Miami Beach, or maybe Monte Carlo.
Compared to Aroostook County?...sure. $2 million would get you a great condo in San Diego.....or many other better climates than Portland, Maine.Southern Maine coast has a beautiful climate, and $4 mil would get you a broom closet with some elbow room in Monte Carlo.
You got me interested now. A 2 room condo in Monte Carlo will set you back about $2.5 to $3 million (U.S.). I guess I would have to settle for Monaco with my 2 mill, or down the coast a few miles to Nice (probably something "nice" there between $500K - $1 mill).Southern Maine coast has a beautiful climate, and $4 mil would get you a broom closet with some elbow room in Monte Carlo.
Agreed, though all those windows on the top four floors will have drawn curtains 24/7. Who wants to be on public display in their hotel room? It's the same issue as the beautiful corner glass at the Hyatt. It looked great before it opened. Now it's just glass with curtains behind it. My fave building in Portland with all glass that is never covered with blinds or curtains is the Wishcamper Center at USM. That's cool.That last one is pretty sweet. Great looking corner building for Commercial St.
Agree about the tree beds interrupting the pedestrian flow in front of such a big building — maybe in a future iteration they can be moved into a parking space. “Park”-ing space.
