Portland mulls proposal for 6-story building on a rare waterfront lot.

By William Hall, Mainebiz
Room for new construction on Portland’s waterfront can be as scarce as summertime parking spaces, but it looks as if developer Jonathan Cohen has landed a spot.

Cohen wants to erect a six-story, mixed-use building at 185 Commercial St., which is currently a 4,000-square-foot parking lot between Dana and Moulton streets. His proposal goes before the Portland Historic Preservation Board for a public hearing Wednesday afternoon.
