Brighton cancels The Portland
The Star Tribune reports that Brighton Development has pulled the plug on The Portland, a proposed condo project designed by James Dayton Design. The most expensive parcels in the 43-unit building near the Guthrie Theater in the Minneapolis Riverfront district had sold, but most of the cheaper units hadn't. It's far from the only condo project to be cancelled due to the downturn in the housing market. The "Sexton, Mill Trace Condominiums and a project proposed for Park Avenue and 10th Street" have also been nixed, the Strib says. To listen to interviews with Jim Dayton about his other Riverfront project, MacPhail Center for Music, check out the Building Minnesota podcast at iTunes or the podLounge.
