If you take a walk around the north Pearl it seems every other block has a “Notice of Public Hearing” sign on a wall or fence. Pretty much all of these represent what’s likely to become a new apartment complex. With the Pearl having one of the lowest vacancy rates in the Portland metro area, it’s no surprise developers are jumping at the chance to build there.
Here’s a few buildings that you should be seeing in the near future. For more on new Portland developments, check out April’s Portland Monthly.
