Project Description

Since the formation of the Lents Town Center Urban Renewal Area in 1998, Prosper Portland has invested $90 million in infrastructure, facilities, transportation, affordable housing, and business development, but actual transformation of the area lagged. With more tangible results as the goal, Prosper Portland and the city, with community support and input, rolled out the Lents Five-Year Action Plan in early 2014, calling for focused investments that would have the greatest benefit and impact on existing residents and businesses.

Lents Town Center URA Boundaries Map

Lents development projectsIn October 2014, Prosper Portland issued a request for interest from development partners who could help us advance that goal through the purchase and development of multiple sites located along SE 92nd Avenue and SE Foster Road, in and around the Lents Town Center. At the same time we committed to a strategic plan that focuses on creating healthy, complete neighborhoods with vibrant communities and corridors. Our goal is to support growth of mixed use, mixed income communities that contribute to improved business and resident satisfaction with the community.

In January 2015, Prosper Portland selected four proposals of nine submitted, and on October 27, 2015 more than 150 participants explored the preliminary designs. All four projects are working through design and development.
