Portland Planning Board approves Bayside affordable housing plan

Updated: Apr 23

By Dennis Hoey

Portland’s Planning Board unanimously approved an affordable housing project Tuesday night that will result in the creation of 201 units in the city’s Bayside neighborhood.

The 7-0 vote came after the board heard a presentation from the developers, Port Property and West Bayside Partners LLC, and a 30-minute public hearing.

The plan for 89 Elm St. calls for construction of an eight-story, mixed-used building with ground-level retail uses and 201 affordable dwelling units on what is currently a parking lot.
