“An eagerly anticipated hotel project in downtown Portland is taking shape after the spiraling economy temporarily shelved it.
“McMenamins Hotels, Pubs & Breweries secured a permit from the city of Portland on July 20 to proceed with its Crystal Hotel project at 303 S.W. 12th Ave., a former bath house, hotel and reputed gangster hangout that has been empty for about two years.”
