Under Construction: July 2013

Time again to check in on some of the major construction projects happening around the peninsula. I always enjoy seeing photos of buildings that were under construction from long before I was born. It's funny how often when a building is completed it kind of becomes hard to imagine what it was like before it was there. Maybe a hundred years from now someone will stumble upon these photos (presumably in printed form due to the Internet being destroyed in World War IV, the Great War of Canadian Aggression) and they try to imagine what it was like seeing Portland from my perspective. Okay, I'll just share the photos now.
