  1. Can’t wait for Eleven West to be developed! But I wonder, whatever happened to the Byline development at the Loyd Cinemas? It has been infamously in the permit review process. Can somebody please tell me what is going with that? It might as well go inactive if it’s taking this long.

    • It’s pretty much cancelled at this point. I’m thinking the sears movie theater project is cancelled as well. As that’s taking equally as long to start. In fact the Live Nation project is pretty much stalled and looking dead at this point as well.

      Makes you wonder if the mall ownership are working secretly with the baseball group planning to bring MLB to Portland on a deal to just all the sudden not move forward with these projects

      • Thanks for the response. And wow, even the live nation project? Right after Zidell Yards was cancelled (for now at least) and now live nation? I still have hopes for an MLB stadium. I think that has a lot of support from the public. I occasionally see a MLB PDX bumper sticker.

        • My friend brought up a good point…which team is going to move to Portland? Does anyone know if any owners have shown even a speck of interest in moving or selling?

          • So many major projects cancelled. It’s making me nervous that something’s going on. I mean, in the mid 2000s stuff like this started, culminating in the Crash of ’08. Right up to it people insisted everything was fine. I’m getting the same vibes now, and the makers and shakers say everything is fine. If it was, then why is so much being cancelled? I’m bummed about the cinema redevelopment being cancelled. They had some nice ideas for the space. The Lloyd District really needs some help and some people. I hope the Zidell properties come back, too. There’s so much land down there. It seems a shame to just keep it all dirt fields.

  2. Just look at the projects. It shouldn’t take THIS long to get the movie theater and live nation project started. Something is definitely up or the Lloyd district is really in trouble

      • I’m actually ok if the Lloyd center area has to fail before it has a renaissance. That mall is an eyesore to our city’s fabric. Once it fails and we can restore smaller blocks of development and mid rise/high rise buildings. This will probably be a 5-10 year process. It might even be cool if we put the new MLB stadium in the mix with new housing in the Lloyd district.

        The city is evolving. I say let the old school mall fail, and then we can reclaim all that beautiful central city fabric.

  3. I think baseball is unliklely to come to Portland. The most likely team for relocation would be Tampa Bay which has an abysmal stadium and no local interest in building something new. But the most likely destination would not be Portland. It would be San Antonio which is a similar size city that already has a stadium that can be configured for baseball (the Alamo Dome) while they are building something new. San Antonio has a massive tourism infrastructure on the west side with all the big theme parks and has a massive market in Mexico waiting to be tapped. Monterrey MX is only a few hours away and is a market of over 5 million. Austin which is also the size of Portland is only an hour north. The San Antonio Spurs have massively tapped into the MX market and baseball is a far more popular sport than basketball in MX. A San Antonio team could even play occasional games in Monterrey which has the largest and nicest baseball stadium in Mexico.
