1. Let me understand this correctly. A building 4 blocks away (Umpqua Bank Apts) is only 33% full (180 vacancies) therefore the building that is fours blocks away (Sandy 51)meets an approval of adding 6 additional residences because of the housing crisis. Who has the city in their pocket one might ask. Not the long time neighbor residences that will be scraping for parking places or neighborhood associations but maybe the developers of this city?

  2. You are correct that KOZ, the developer of the Sandy 51 condominium, applied to the City of Portland to convert the first floor commercial space to six residential units. The RCPNA Land Use and Transportation Committee submitted comments against the proposal in an effort to retain active, commercial space in that building. The City of Portland approved the developer’s application in October 2021. Sorry for the late response.
