Redevelopment of the Broadway Corridor is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to add to Portland’s economy and vitality and to deliver community benefits.
The Broadway Corridor, and more particularly the USPS site, is identified in the City of Portland’s West Quadrant Plan as a key opportunity site for high-density employment and signature city attractions, connecting the Old Town/Chinatown and Pearl District neighborhoods.
The Broadway Corridor area is approximately 32 acres and encompasses several Prosper Portland-owned properties, including the recently acquired 14-acre United States Postal Service site , located on the western half of the study area. Additionally, Prosper Portland owns Blocks Y and R and Union Station (see map on right). Built in 1896, Union Station is an active hub for Amtrak passenger rail; Prosper Portland aims to further position and activate the station as a gateway to the city and surrounding neighborhood.
Prosper Portland has initiated a multi-phase process to determine the development strategy for the area. Prosper Portland is pursuing planning and redevelopment of the Broadway Corridor with an intentional focus on ensuring all communities have an opportunity to engage in and benefit from its redevelopment. Robust community engagement will accompany efforts to solicit development partner(s), prepare a Master Plan for future development, and define required public benefits.
