Shipyard Brewing Plans to Build Hotel & Residential Building on Site


A Rendering of the Proposed 105-Room  Hotel By  Archetype Architect.

Beer for Sale Inside Shipyard Brewery Store, 86 Newbury Street.

A 105-room hotel is the centerpiece of 86 Newbury LLC’s application to the city  for the redevelopment of Shipyard Brewing, 86 Newbury Street, on Munjoy Hill.  The proposed redevelopment is on about two (2) acres of land overlooking  Portland Harbor. The development is with Bateman Partners.  The project is expected to cost $65 million.

The existing brewery building will be renovated and a new four (4) to six (6) story building is proposed with a gross floor area of 174,000 sf.   The proposed uses and floor areas include 60,000 sf of office space, 40,000 of technical fulfillment pharmacy, 100 sf of brewery, 4,000 sf of tasting room, retail and a 105 room hotel as previously referred to.  Two residential buildings are proposed to be demolished and replaced with a nine (9) unit residential building at the intersection of Hancock and Newbury Streets.  Structured parking for 360 vehicles is proposed.

No date has been set for this application to be on the planning  board’s agenda.

How many hotels can Portland sustain?  There are too many coffee shops and beauty salons.  When will the market for hotels be saturated?
