I figured out why Lake Oswego is taking on a distinctive "Lake Oswego Style" that it has never seen before - the rustic, Arts and Crafts and Tudor design styles that seem so ... so precious that they belong in a themed resort town. It's because that is what the Visioneers of Lake Oswego's
Downtown were thinking when they remade the Downtown Plan. How do I know? Just take a look at the pictures below - they are highly suggestive of the design styles showing up downtown. It's as if someone(s) wanted to make LO over into a resort so they could play where they live or live where they play. Isn't that what we all want?
Until you eventually want to go home. Or you find you can't afford your staycation. Or perhaps you really liked Lake Oswego as a small town and that is why you moved here and now it isn't LO anymore.
Take a look and see if you can tell where the photos are from. NOTE: Some buildings are 5-6 stories tall. I was looking more at the style rather than height, though several do fit LO code.
Did you figure it out? I am not sure which is which, but the images are from Vail, Aspen, Jackson Hole, Whistler, Telluride, and Bend.
