Timeline of the Broadway Corridor project


Current Phase/Phase 2: Scoping

Prosper Portland is currently completing due diligence to inform the best approach for upcoming phases of the project. Efforts include:

  • Hosting a Community Visioning Workshop to kick off a discussion of project opportunities and priorities;
  • Completing case study research;
  • Establishing an Executive Committee
  • Establishing a Steering Committee; and
  • Seeking stakeholder input on a draft solicitation for a development partner

Steering Committee members advise Prosper Portland and the Portland Housing Bureau on goals for the project including:

  • criteria for and selection of a project developer;
  • the mix of housing and employment opportunities;
  • configuration of streets, parks, and stormwater management;
  • priorities for equitable engagement and community benefits, including:

Phase 1: Framework Plan

The Broadway Corridor Framework Plan served as the first phase of the planning process for the area. The purpose of the Broadway Corridor Framework Plan is two-fold:

  1. Articulate a strategic vision for development or redevelopment of the Broadway Corridor area, and
  2. Develop a preferred development concept for the USPS site.

Formulation of the Framework Plan included participation from a Stakeholder Advisory Committee and a Technical Advisory Committee, input from Public Open Houses and surveys (online and in person), and the expertise of a multi-disciplinary consultant team.

Project Team

Prosper Portland hired a multi-disciplinary team offering an important combination of local knowledge and global perspective and expertise to guide the creation of the Framework Plan. The team was led by ZGF Architects, with strong partnership from Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM). They were joined by HR&A Advisors and ECONorthwest to offer real estate strategy and market analysis expertise; Nelson/Nygaard Consulting Associates to provide multimodal transportation planning and evaluation services; Harper Houf Peterson Righellis to estimate public infrastructure costs; and Cogan Owens Greene and Design + Culture Lab to facilitate public involvement.
