Building History

Hoyt Street Properties initiated construction work on the 150-unit Cosmpolitan on the Park apartment tower in 2014 and completed it two years later in 06/2015. By 2021, Hoyt Street had developed fourteen buildings in Portland with a cumulative 1,965 units. Portland-based Bora Architects designed the Cosmpolitan on the Park, and, between 2009 and 2021, had completed three other buidings for the developer, including The Encore condominiums (2009), Block 17 apartments (2015) and Vista condominiums (2018).

Building Notes

A four-story platform housed first-floor retail spaces and three levels of above-grade parking. The office tower sprung from this elevated pad. Benson Global, a Portland-based manufacturer and construction firm, produced The Cosmopolitan's glass curtain wall.The building had 191 parking spaces when originally completed.

In 2021, the New York Times reported that an 880-square-foot, one-bedroom, one-bath unit on the fourth floor had an asking price of $628,000. The west-facing unit came with two terraces and a single parking place. As noted in the Times note, the Cosmopolitan had a community room, 24-hour concierge, gym, electric-car chargers.
