Portlanders will soon have to kiss the landmark Alder Street Food Cart Pod goodbye. But tourists will get an unprecedented view of the Rose City.

Design plans for a massive 35-story, 460-foot tall hotel tower, which the city is calling Block 216, were approved last week by the city's design commission, The Oregonian first reported. If built, the building would be the fifth tallest in Portland, behind the Wells Fargo Center, U.S. Bancorp Tower (aka Big Pink), the KOIN Center and the Park Avenue West Tower.
