Good find! I would think it has to be those two structures which are set back from EP (13 and 19 EP according to Google Maps) that would be removed. The large house at 5 EP just finished renovations months ago so I doubt it would be removed - and it may be historic (I can't remember what happened with the MH historic district?).Big new site plan application for our emerging Douchebag District:
No application documents have been uploaded yet, but the overview describes it as "blocks 4 and 6" (which suggests a future "Block 5" project). IIRC, according to the old master plan, block 6 would have been the tallest building on the far eastern end of the site, next to the old Portland House tower.
Also of interest: the application says that the project will demolish 18 units/16,000 SF of existing housing – and since the Portland Co. site doesn't currently have any housing on it, I have a hunch this means that the developers have acquired at least one of the abutting properties up on Fore Street/Eastern Prom to enlarge their site.
CSS site says that this application would build 411 apartments in 430,000 square feet of buildings.
PLUS 696 parking spaces
Agreed. They inserted a pic of the helicopter on the yacht from this past June (billionaire Lorenzo Fertitta's yacht), one with a bottle of white wine (probably not TJ's cheap), and another pic of the yachts from last year. I'd say this endeavor is ONLY for condo buyers... $799K and up to $5-6 million. And yes, a dead zone from November to May (7 months). Harbor Hill must be for the lower-class types, or under one million.Looks like they've got their marketing website up. Not much in the way of exterior renderings but some insight into what they're hoping to develop... 3 "distinct residential communities"... Channel Mark, The Promenade, Harbor Hill... barf. I just don't see how this wouldn't become an enclave of seasonal residents and investors that was dead eight months out of the year. Even if the "food hall" became something cool like what the Portland Public Market could have been, not enough people are going to make a trip to this area to shop for food in January when there are so many other options in greater Portland.
