It's gonna be a looker when that glass goes in.
Where did you find this data? The census website is terrible. I can't find the info at the municipal level.Local 2020 Census results are out, for those interested.
Since 2010, Portland itself grew by just 3.3% to 68,408.
Westbrook and Scarborough both grew by over 10%. Westbrook was the fastest growing community in the state (16.2%) Biddeford and Saco also saw solid growth (The BSOOB area added 5,600 people since 2010)
Overall, Cumberland County added about 21,000 in population, and York added about 11,000.
Could you direct me to your link or source, everything I've seen shows Portland still in the 66K range?

I made the mistake of spending time in West Texas (Lubbock, Odessa, and Amarillo) where looking at the population was giving the impression of a true urban core/downtown area. I was dead wrong, their downtown's were similar to Derry, NH and Willimantic, Connecticut. Maybe add a couple "high rise" - 15 story buildings. Plus these Texas cities are the size of some counties in New England. As for Portland, it has much more commerce and pedestrian foot traffic than any city in West Texas. Portland is such a great location too, living in Manchester, NH, we just admire from a far.The metro area is the more accurate indicator of a city's population. Otherwise, El Paso, Texas is much bigger than Miami, and a little bigger than Boston. I've been to El Paso (twice). It feels like the size of Portland.
Is that the Workingman's Club? I would think/hope that was included in the India Street historic district.Is this a new structure to be built in the vacant lot to the east of the former Auto Europe building or a total renovation of the current four story building which is actually 29 Commercial Street? I hope it's a new building.
