Building Progress

Last week the final floor of The Cosmopolitan was poured!  Later this week, the roof will be poured! There are only a few floors awaiting windows. Boxes of cabinets can be seen in some of the 2nd floor units, ready for installation. Patio doors and siding are going in.  It’s so interesting to watch the exterior change color as the sun moves throughout the day.

There are still wonderful units available for purchase.   Visit the showroom at 1130 NW 10th Avenue, M-F 10-5 or S-S 11-5 for more information.


Cosmopolitan Showroom NOW OPEN!


Hoyt Realty Group’s showroom showcasing the Cosmopolitan’s finishes, features and floor plans has opened! You just have to see it to believe it….beautiful Italian Pedini cabinets with all Miele appliances.


The finishes are exquisite and have been well-received; wood flooring, natural stone in the baths, carpeted bedrooms, the option of mixed color on upper cabinets to base cabinets, quartz countertops.



Every unit has a patio area and those in the tower are recessed to be protected from the wind and rain so in theory they can be in use all year round.


Better hurry in….34 have been sold already! Showroom is open daily M-F 10-5 and Saturday and Sunday 11-5 or by appointment. Call 503-227-2000 to talk to an agent and Marilyn Andersen, Michele Bell or Tiffany Shleifer will be happy to put you in your new home with the best views in town!






Christmas Tree in Jamison Square Park!

by Bettie DeWitt


We have a new tree this year in Jamison Square Park! It is a 30-foot Oregon Cascade fir (albeit faux) which was made by Crystal Valley Decorations in Albany, Oregon.  The lights are new RGB light strands which are controlled at the individual LED level, so the lights are able to operate in an independent fashion. This accounts for the computerized light show and the ability to write messages around the middle of the tree which say Happy Holidays Portland and Good Will and Peace to All.  Pretty neat!!

Carols are also played for a few hours every night – a nice mix of carols for children, traditional vocals and some instrumentals, too. The songs play every 20 minutes from 5:30 to 9:30. For the second year, snowflakes are thrown on the floor of the park and the star at the top shines bright.

The tree will be taken down January 5 2015. Maybe there will be some freak snowstorm and they will have to leave it up a few days past that date. Until then, enjoy!!
