Competing proposals for the redevelopment of the Maine State Pier in Portland ha
Competing proposals for the redevelopment of the Maine State Pier in Portland have similar ideas on dividing up the space between retail, hotel, open space, cruise ship terminal operations, ferry loading and other uses. The plans, submitted by Olympia Companies and Ocean Properties, differ on the issue of parking. Ocean Properties calls for a 350-space parking garage that would be unsightly. Olympia's plan does not account for parking on-site, though it admits the project would use 440 parking spaces at peak demand. Olympia's idea to secure long-term leases in either Casco Bay Lines Garage or the Ocean Gateway Garage is unrealistic, as both facilities are or will be at full capacity.
