The final wiener schnitzels and strudels may not be that far off for longtime Portland restaurant Der Rheinlander.
According to a story from the Hollywood Star News, Sera Architects has applied for an early assistance meeting with the city to talk about a new mixed-use building that's under consideration for the property at 5035 N.E. Sandy Blvd.
The property has been home to the Rheinlander since 1965, when Horst Mager opened the restaurant in what had formerly been a Swedish eatery. The more casual Gustav's opened adjacent to the Rheinlander some 30 years later. Mager and Guten Foods Inc. are listed as the property owners. A history of the restaurant on its website notes that one of Horst's daughters, Suzanne, purchased the company in the 1990s.
The Star News noted that the proposed building could be a two- to four-story mixed-use building with ground floor retail and office space.
The restaurant would be the latest in a growing line of Portland favorites that are falling by the wayside as new development moves in. Among the others that are likely to be replaced: Veritable Quandary, Lotus Card Room & Cafe, Jimmy Mak's and Sewick's.
