Hot off the “cutting room floor,” the latest episode of Portland’s Centers & Corridors video focuses on the different types of these vibrant hubs and bustling streets. Some of our favorite places in Portland take a starring role; neighborhoods like Sellwood and Montavilla, Multnomah Village, Hollywood and St Johns. And major thoroughfares like Barbur and Sandy boulevards.
Viewers can see computer-generated renderings of the different types of neighborhood, town and regional centers and corridors. The video shows how the size and scale of each determines the types of amenities and services each one can provide Portland’s residents and visitors. And it helps explain why more density and development means more shops, restaurants, transit, parks and civic buildings for people living in and around these compact neighborhoods and vibrant streets.
So take a look, and see if you can tell what kind of center or corridor you live or work in — or would like to. Portland has so many different shapes and sizes of great places. Focusing growth in Centers and Corridors means we’ll be able to create even more.
