I left a few locations off of my post earlier this month so it's time for another entry.
First is the project on Maine Wharf (to the left) which may include a restaurant on the first floor and office space above:
Sheridan Street Apartments, which will sit on a 45 degree incline below Standpipe Park. Hoping the views from the Park aren't negatively impacted.
Munjoy Heights rises in the distance. And in the foreground, the current location of Casale's Auto on Washington Avenue may become the site of East Cove Townhomes.
And for good measure, an update on West End Place.

The Explorer of the Seas, one of the cruise ships in town today, pictured at Ocean Gateway. Some of the tourists on board might have been disappointed by the afternoon weather, but I think Portland tends to be rather photogenic with some cloud cover and passing showers.

West End Place, apartments with first floor retail on the corner of Pine and Brackett Streets.
Munjoy Heights, luxury townhomes off of Walnut Street.
Maine Medical Center, Bramhall Campus expansion (new operating rooms).

Portland's first bike corral was set up on Friday in front of Crema Coffee and Rosemont Market on Commercial Street. One bicycle corral can provide temporary parking for up to ten bicycles (as opposed to just one car). You can read more about the project in the city's press release here. If this pilot location goes well then we will hopefully see a few more corrals in front of local businesses next year.
