There are quite a few projects going up right now in and around Eliot.  North Eliot is getting most of the action. The two proposed large six-plus story tower developments at NE Fremont and Williams as well as the project at NE 7th and Russell have driven the most uproar.  However, there are a number of  other developments being proposed  or already under construction.

Proposed to LUTC:

  • Tearing down a house at 3116 N Vancouver for 18 micro apartments, each under 300 square feet, on a 40×45 foot lot with no parking raised some eyebrows.
  • The construction of the 5 story building at Monroe and MLK has transitioned to the interior of the building, reopening the sidewalk after 3 years .
  • 2 adjacent projects are under way – 12 units of apartments on Monroe and 11 units of townhouses on Morris.  The Morris project is on the site of the previous Morris St Garden.
  • Cascadia Behavioral Healthcare is proposing to redevelop their site at Morris and MLK into a large L-shaped building with a rear courtyard, pending affordable housing grants.
  • 12 townhouses are being proposed north of the I-405 onramp at Ivy and Commercial.
  • The former Port City site on Williams south of Russell is on the auction block from Multnomah County.
  • The large garden on tillamook street, formerly project grow is next to the site of 2 recently burned down houses.  Will this site be used for a large project or a smaller one?
  • There is a proposal for a 7- unit long monopoly-house shaped building at 436 NE Ivy
  • Emanuel Hospital is doing a large expansion of their operating room on N Kerby
  • A set of backyards on NE Graham was subdivided into 4 lots.
  • Cook St Lofts: a 5-story 100+ unit apartment complex on N Vancouver south of Cook St
  • Cook St Apartments: a 6-story 206 unit apartment complex between N Vancouver and N Williams north of Cook St
  • The Woods – 72 apartments in a flashy 6-story apartment building at N Fargo and N Williams (NW corner)
  • Next to Pizza-a-go-go at Cook and Williams there is construction going on.  Across the street there is ongoing environmental remediation before construction can commence
  • Just outside Eliot construction is progressing quickly on the One North project at N Fremont and Williams

The Eliot Land Use and Transportation Committee (LUTC) gets the inside scoop on these projects as well as transportation issues. We meet at 6:30 pm at St. Philip the Deacon Church at NE Knott and Rodney Streets on the 2nd Monday of every month.  Drop by or check out our meeting minutes.

  1. The breakneck pace of development in our neighborhood is a reflection of the pending consideration by the Portland City Council to change regulations about parking, height, footprints of buildings on single lots, etc. So we have front row seats for a developer’s orgy unmatched in nearly a century. Whoopee!!!!!!
