Building a school on the site at Gateway is probably the dumbest development in Portland. It sits on a prime large lot a block from Max. That space could fit 1000 apartments, 1000s of workers in an office tower….. Kids going to school are gonna have to cross busy streets to get there….
It doesn’t make sense why the city doesn’t take advantage of that big field that’s been fenced for years across the street from the max line and Fred Meyers..
It has a grocery store, a Main Max line and quick freeway access to Downtown (about 9min w/ no traffic) and the airport isn’t to far..
It’s weird they don’t go crazy with development there.. In my opinion, it’s better than the Foster development where the copper penny use to be the city is going nuts with.. that’s further south from the central city but yet leave gateway untouched..
Any theories why?
RIP the vern
If I recall correctly, the school project is part of a larger site plan that includes assisted housing, apartments, and social services. David Douglas has schools bursting at the seams. You could build 1000s of apartments at the site, but without space in schools that wouldn’t be prudent.
the value of that land versus the value of land in a more residential setting has to be sky high. It just seems that if they sold this land and bought a more appropriate lot they could make quite a bit of money.
The Oregonian did a series on all the missteps with Gateway back in 2013. It’s worth a read. https://www.oregonlive.com/portland/index.ssf/2013/07/broken_promises_gateways_lost.html
