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?
