  1. They’re building more parking?? They’ve got tons of it there already plus lots of public transportation. I thought we were supposed to be reducing auto-dependency, especially in areas ill-equipped to handle it. Why does OHSU need more parking after *just* completing a parking structure in its latest building?

    • There are quite a few reasons for OHSU to build more parking. For one, the surface lot at this location is required to go away soon per the land use review that allowed it to even exist at all. Secondly, the super high density currently planned for both on the hill and by the river requires them to build parking somewhere. Thirdly, the rapid expansion of OHSU has overwhelmed the capacity of the existing transit system. The aerial tram is at peak capacity for much of the day. The Park and Ride lots along the MAX Orange Line have become become de-facto parking lots for OHSU and PSU. All lots are full by 7 AM on school days, yet are only half full on days when college is on break.
