A 45-unit condominium complex proposed in East Bayside faces a public hearing and possible vote in Portland on Tuesday.
South Portland developer Vincent Maietta said if the estimated $13 million project is approved, he plans to break ground next spring.
“We’ve had quite a bit of interest in it,” Maietta said. “It’s got fabulous sunset views over Back Cove and White Mountains and the city of Portland skyline.”
The condos at 218-220 Washington Ave. would be built in a four-story, 45-foot-tall building on steeply sloped land near the Interstate 295 off-ramp, across from the Eastern Promenade intersection with Washington Avenue. The site has a single-family house, which would be demolished.
It’s an example of how developers are looking to even the most challenging sites, including hillsides, to build housing to accommodate the demand to live on the city’s peninsula.
