Work Begins on Maine's Tallest Building

Landry/French Construction began site work on what will become Maine’s Tallest Building. Located on the corner of Federal and Temple Streets in downtown Portland, this new 190-ft, 18-story building will become the tallest building in Maine, passing Franklin Towers, a 16-story, 175-ft. public housing project.

The 180,000-SF mixed-use building will provide much-needed housing in downtown Portland. Once completed in 2023, the building will include 263 market-rate apartments, a 2,100-SF fitness room, and a commercial office suite, such as a gallery, on the lower level.  A 1,500-SF sky lounge with views of the Atlantic Ocean will be built on the top floor. The second floor will feature a 3,000-SF shared lounge with co-working desks and other spaces. A small plaza is designed on the urban site to include benches, a water wall, and plantings.

Located within the Portland Historical district, traditional red Portland brick, granite, and glass will be incorporated into the lower levels. However, the upper section will be constructed of two-story exterior panels with pre-installed windows.
