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 Central City 2035 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 14-acre United States Postal Service site, jointly acquired with the Portland Housing Bureau. 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 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 has informed the approved Master Plan that will guide future development and priorities for public benefits to be provided via public and private investment.
