  •  Orenco Station in Hillsboro... (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    Is pretty close to my ideal of "what 21st century development should look like". Mixed residential and commercial, sited close to high-tech and manufacturing industrial, on a major transit line, wide roads and sidewalks, ample parking (including centrally located common-use lots), and plenty of greenspace. The development is about a decade old, and it already has its own charm, character, and neighborhood feeling.

    Redeveloping east Portland is going to have to follow a different template, of course. But Orenco is, IMO, proof that you don't need to sacrifice basic amenities like parking in order to have a transit-friendly and walkable community.

    Pragmatic progressive. Oregonian, Cascadian, and American. Keeper of the DKE glossary.
