Construction is underway on The Porter, a 299-room boutique-style hotel in Downtown Portland. The site is a 20,400-s.f lot on Southwest Second Avenue between Jefferson and Columbia Streets. Bergelectric is working under Skanska USA to deliver the resort by the fall of 2017.
Dubbed the Porter Hotel, the building will have a “neighborhood-themed restaurant” and a market-style café on the ground floor. There will be meeting facilities below 13-floors of guest rooms. The top level of the 16-story tower will feature a high-end restaurant and lounge with large, covered outdoor terraces with spectacular views of the city.
