I’m not sure what this apartment complex did to warrant a complete leveling but nonetheless, it’s getting one anyway. What I find so amusing about this is that Portland’s tax-paying renter population has actually declined over the past couple of years. Unless this is eventually going to be some kind of low-income housing, I’m not sure who the intended residents will be.
One of the few Portland restaurants popular enough to enjoy its very own Wikipedia page, La Carreta on Southeast McLoughlin Boulevard in Portland closed at some point during the pandemic.
