Huh? Nordeast isn't a German nickname, it's actually a slur against the Eastern Europeans (Polish, Ukrainian, Lithuanian) that settled the area.
Q. What, what? A. In da butt.

If "Nordeast" was one day slur, today it's best known for meaning "north east" in several languages — including German! — and being a nickname for this neighborhood. As explained by Schell's:
Named after the hardworking neighborhood where the original Grain Belt Brewery established its roots back in 1893. ‘Nordeast’ is an endearing term which comes from the Northern and Eastern European immigrants and their language which helped shape Northeast Minneapolis.
Sorry for being so appallingly wrong in my original post!

"Nordeast" ist halb Deutsch, man will "Nordosten" sagen. ;)

Die wörtliche Bedeutung und
Entomologie sind vielleicht auch anders, idk. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Residential building names always have been and always will be incredibly stupid.

Agreed. And Didier, if they cause people to feel the urge to Portland, I'm guessing there are twice as many idiotic named buildings for you to live in there too... LOL

Yes, but this neighborhood is colloquially called Nordeast. So if you're going to use a generic German name, you could make it less generic by building upon the already-German neighborhood nickname.

This is a huge missed opportunity for the city and makes my urge to move to Portland even stronger.
The name of a project is within the city's control?

If you're willing to move because of the name of a development, bye Felicia. I'm sure Portland is immune to crazy naming schemes hatched in developers boardrooms. That's like really wanting to date someone because they have all the right features but won't because they have a name you don't like. So petty.

What I do know is that this could have been around 500 feet at named Nord Turm, but the city wouldn't let them build tall enough, so I'm moving to New York.

They've been doing some concrete work. Seemingly patching areas and reinforcing the edge along the RR track...

It's been a while since I've been in the area. Anything significant happening here yet?
