Abstract

"Focus on Greater Portland" piece on the surge in downtown condominium proposals, noting that while the coming boom creates excitement about economic development, it also raises concerns about the potential long-term changes the condominiums will bring, including gentrification and sprawl. Jessica Tomlinson, co-founder of an organization trying to preserve living and work space for artists, is among those with questions. Most of the new dwellings are being marketed to baby boomers as luxury homes, typically priced between $400,000 and $600,000. With details on several proposed projects, including Monument Plaza, Riverwalk and Waterview.
