Portland Then/Now: NE Martin Luther King Blvd. and Davis Street

Thursday, September 03, 2015

Portland Then/Now: NE Martin Luther King Blvd. and Davis Street

THEN: According to a comment on vintageportland.wordpress.com this photo “is almost certainly documenting the state of this building prior to the widening of Union Avenue (now MLK Blvd.).” The building, at the time this photo was taken in 1929, was home to a piano factory, an electrical repair shop and a former printer.

NOW: According to a post on vintageportland.wordpress.com “the building has undergone a remodel which increased the occupant load. The ground floor retail in what is now known as the Union Arms Apartments was removed and residential units added there. The brick facade was continued to the sidewalk and you can see a change of brick color in the current view. The main entrance was changed at that time from a rectangular corbeled brick opening to an arched opening…the apartments on the upper floors were sub-divided to make more studios and one bedrooms.” 

A few blocks south of the Union Arms on MLK and East Burnside is The Yard. Located on the east end of the Burnside Bridge, according to Andersen Construction this 21-story, 334,000 square-foot mixed use includes residential, commercial and retail space. Andersen also says there will be 285 apartments located within 17 levels above four levels of above-grade parking along with 20,000 square feet of retail space.
