Building Boom

For a city of its size, Portland is doing quite well in the real estate department. Here are the major projects now under way around the peninsula. These photos were taken this morning, so pardon the overcast sky.

123-room Canal Plaza Hotel on Fore Street, includes some retail space on the corner of Union and Fore Streets.




The Bay House Condominiums in the Eastern Waterfront neighborhood:




131-room Courtyard by Marriott plus apartment residences and a restaurant on Commercial Street


Danforth on High residences on the corner of (any guesses?) Danforth and High Streets.  You can see the recently completed Elm Terrace across the intersection. 



The $40 million renovation of the Eastland Park hotel into a Westin property is still underway. Shown is this photo is part of the expansion to the "Top of the East" restaurant and lounge area. 



Phase one of renovations to the Civic Center, involving a new entrance and administrative offices on Free Street.
