And just this month, GBD Architects asked the city of Portland to review designs for a building by an unnamed client. If approved, The Overton will soar 24 stories above the corner of Northwest 12th and Pettygrove.

The Overton could bring as many as 270 apartment units to the north end of the Pearl District — and as many parking spots — if approved.

That would be astounding.

Is this the same proposal as the North Point Tower?

IIRC this project is a few blocks north of that project.

If I'm on the right block, it appears Unico bought the block last year.

This is the SAME Unico that brought us the Asa Flats!

Sioux612 Nov 21, 2012 9:27 PM

This is the same block of this once-upon-a-time proposal, right?

Hey Mark, thanks for terrifying me (:)) but isn't that block you linked to the one with the building with Metrovino in it? Across from the Hoyt parking lot aka future North Pointe Tower?

bvpcvm Nov 22, 2012 12:42 AM

The block Mark linked to is the location of a datacenter of some sort. MetroVino is one block east of there and on the opposite side of Northrup. The Hoyt parking is between Northrup and Overton between 10th and 11th.

The developer, according to the tiny bit of article the DJC lets you see, is someone named "Oseran Investment Co".

I was one block off...It looks like this is the right block: http://www.portlandmaps.com/detail.c...&seg_id=136379

I understand theres no height limit north of Lovejoy in the Pearl, but is there any logic to heights in the Pearl? Heights the furthest away from downtown and transit service? A bunch of new adjacent 6 story buildings then all of a sudden a 24? Im all for increasing density in the heart of our cities, but this seems a little crazy to have such a height difference.

Derek Nov 23, 2012 1:43 AM

I don't have a problem with a building with 24 stories in this area, in fact I think it's pretty awesome. I just wish more of these 6 story buildings were in the 10-15 story range.

The logic is that the Norther part of the Pearl doesn't impact the West Hills residents view of Mt. Hood. :cool:

However, we HAVE gotten some decent heights in the Pearl - the Brewery Blocks and the Casey are good examples. I think the Pearl will be slowly maturing over the next 50+ years...

Derek Nov 25, 2012 9:35 PM

YEAH! I can't wait to see what The Pearl will be like when I'm 71! :P

Some of it I've heard is also that it's to hide the Fremont Bridge approaches. Apparently the ConWay site allows the highest heights near the bridge as well.

It is probably where I will end up when I hit retirement age.

Whoa. This is new, right?

(access required)
by Lee Fehrenbacher, DJC

Unico Properties has scheduled a pre-application conference with the city to discuss plans for an approximately $64.5 million, 26-story tower at 1301 N.W. 12th Ave.

^This is new! Do you have a link? Is this an office tower or condo/apartment?

eric cantona Aug 28, 2013 3:30 AM

the '70's called. they want their building back.

bvpcvm Aug 28, 2013 3:33 AM

Anyone remember what other projects Unico has been involved in? The name is so familiar...

I hope this is an early - very early - vision. It looks very 70's, and not in a good way.

BTW, a while back someone asked for a map of projects in NW, which I duly provided. I've been keeping it up to date and added all the projects I'm aware of (except for St Johns). Link here if you're interested. There's so much to keep track of.
