The forty new apartment units under construction at the north end of Multnomah Village on Southwest Capitol Highway could be available for lease sometime in February. There will be a tap room on the ground floor.
Construction on Multnomah Station, as the new four-story building at the site of an old gas station is called, could be completed by the end of March, according to Project Manager Iris O'Neal with LMS Construction. "Leasing will commence in February 2020, though this is not a firm date and subject to change," she explained in mid-January.
Rates on the 40 units are still to be determined because, according to the owner, "pricing is based upon market conditions at the time the units come online," she wrote in an email.
There will be 40 units. Half of them will be studio apartments, 14 will be one-bedroom units, four will have two bedrooms and one unit will have three bedrooms. Among the amenities will be a dog wash, bike storage and patio decks on four of the fourth floor units.
Which brewery operation will open a tap room is not currently being revealed, writes O'Neal. " A high end pint/tap room will be moving into the corner retail unit, and a high end salon will be occupying the east retail location. Grand opening dates for these locations are to be determined."
As she explained to the SW Connection in January of 2019 as construction began, there will be no off-street parking spaces provided. O'Neill said Portland's policy of not requiring tenant parking is a trade-off for the inclusion of affordable rental units.
The vintage gasoline pump on display at the gas station before the demolition last January has been preserved by LMC Construction and will be on permanent display at the apartment complex that will be built on the site across from The Lucky Lab on 32nd Avenue.
With a nod to nearby businesses, she wrote, "LMC thanks the Multnomah Village Community for being great neighbors during construction. We understand it isn't ideal to have construction traffic and noise in your neighborhood; we appreciate your patience as we work to put the final touches on this new addition to your community. Special Thanks to Riversgate Church, Hum Strum Drum, The Village Hut and Lucky Lab."
