Work will begin in June on Providence Portland Medical Center’s new guest housing project on NE Glisan Street between 44th and 45th. Fencing will go up in early June, with demolition expected to begin by mid June. The crew will identify and save any building materials which can be reused in the project such as large glue-lam beams and solid wood members. If all goes well, construction on the project will begin in August. The facility should be ready for patients and their families by late summer or early fall 2015. As promised, we will share construction updates on a regular basis or as needed. Please call Jean Powell Marks, 503-215-6433, if you have any concerns.
