Re: Art and Architecture Building Redevelopment - 3338 University Ave SE - 14 Stories / ~155'

What if ... this building actually creates something quite interesting to look at from the tower compared to what you can see from the top today? The old, “but the building will block my view of the highway and railroad yard” eventually becomes “all those tall buildings are a nice view”.

Two more towers would make a nice string of towers on this side of the falls. I hope the coming recession. Doesn’t kill that.

Re: Washington and Portland Mixed Use - 22 stories

I like that the tower will be up on Washington and Portland. The thread shows the fire station being proposed for a different corner, 5th instead.
