Whistle-Stop (3/14)



  1. How 'bout those Sox! There's still time I keep telling myself
  2. ^Great find! This would be excellent in this location. It is similar to the style of the AAA building at the next major intersection on Marginal Way. I wonder how they can squeeze the Amtrak around these buildings?
  3. From what I gather, the major is "elected" by the city council. The mayor is more of a representation of the city council than the big boss who calls all the shots. It's like the Monarchy and the Parliment in England, like the Queen of England represents the nation but has no political authority. She is very important nontheless!
  4. Too bad the people don't get to vote for mayor. She really is a nice lady though and she is pro-urban development and whatnot from all the articles I've read. And it is amazing how many minorities there are in Portland these days, in just the 18 years that I've been alive, the city has really diversified. I realized it this summer at the 4th of July thing when a lot of the residents from different ethnic backgrounds all mix together.
  5. Yep, it's was great news for northern new england to keep the the PNS.
  6. I just happend to be searching through Emporis.com in the Manchester section, and found some building heights... City Hall Plaza - 217 feet (20 floors) Hampshire Plaza - 259 feet (20 floors) I bring it up becuase in the trivia section of this city profile it says.... "City Hall Plaza, the tallest building in northern New England" So either the info at emporis.com or the info in this thread is incorrect. I don't mean to be a nit-picker but I just like to keep everything in check.
  7. There was a big article on the Prsss Herald earlier this week about that house they are moving. I don't know if anyone had posted it or not. The house was there before that last big fire long ago and they are moving it a few streets over because it is condidered historical. I got a picture of the site today too while strolling around the peninsula randomly. edit- That was indeed THE movie of the summer with half the house barelling down the road.
  8. My name is Corey, I'm 18, and I live 15 miles west of Portland, Maine. I am going to be a Freshman and the University of Maine in Orono, Maine starting September 2nd, 2005. That is all.
  9. I read something in the Southern Maine Forcaster today at work involving that guy who proposed those 50+ twin towers for South Portland a few years back. I guess he is getting public support now to build a "village" style townhouse area, a grocery store, and some other retail on the site. I'll keep my eyes peeled for more info.
  10. I agree with everyone's feedback on the parking lots. If they built a few 5 story parking garages, they could save space to sell to developers, and people wouldn't have to walk as far to hospital!
  11. Interesting. Half of that building has been there for a few years now. Extending the building like in the rendering would be excellent. It looks like 5 floors in that drawing. I think it would like perfect with 8 floors.
  12. 20 Pearl Street looks pretty interesting. It sure beats the parking lot that is currently situated there. This is the view from the top of a office and parking garage complex across the street. The empty lot is in the bottom right of the photo.
  13. Gosh, there's been a lot of talk about Portland recently.
  14. ^That looks great for a lower-end income development. That end of Congress Street is due for a few new buldings. I like the trees along the street too, nice touch.
  15. I didn't know you visited so many forums Shazbat, this is the 3rd time I've replied to your post and the 3rd time I've had different replies. Monument plaza will be condos once completed. It will be the first fancy condo project in this area of Congress Street. It is indeed steps away from Monument square. Here is the site as of a few months ago: Waterview condos will be a nice partner for the Back Bay towers and will surely add a lot to the skyline from the North and west. And this will be a hotel and condo combo built on the current site of Jordan's meat plant.
