After all this, the Broadway Corridor went from numerous high-rises to just sports fields in the middle of downtown!? Are you kidding me? So much for high density in a downtown core. At the end of the day it will just be a another homeless camp as if we don’t have enough of those. Huge disappointment for a huge redevelopment opportunity, rather keep the Post Office at this point. Thanks Prosper Portland for this glowing recommendation!
The plan is sports fields surrounded by high rises…..
I can’t tell if they intend to do any reconnection of the grid. The pictures in the article are too small. It looks like a lot more field than housing, though. What are they going to do to make sure that the parks don’t just become homeless hangouts? It’s kind of a problem in that area, and the Park blocks have long been magnets for them up and down the length of Downtown.
