Josh Benthien is a partner at Northland. In this video, he describes the units, which will be located right on the edge of the Old Port. The building is being totally renovated, and will include eight 2-bedroom apartments, sixteen 1-bedroom apartments, and four studio units. Everything will be brand new.

It is widely known that the City of Portland, Maine is in the middle of a pretty tight housing crunch. In fact, Benthien experienced this phenomenon himself when he first moved to the city several years ago, as reported recently in the Portland Press Herald. The paper also published an in-depth series on the problem, called “Welcome to Portland: NO VACANCY.”

Developers have been building high-priced condominiums, of course, but this is one of the first major “change in use” projects in many years that will introduce brand new apartment units right into the heart of Portland downtown.
