Portland’s oldest and most iconic neighborhood, the Skidmore/Old Town District, is experiencing more investment and positive momentum than it has in a century as Portland’s urban renaissance comes full circle to the section of town where the Rose City began.
Local institutions The University of Oregon Portland Center, the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine and Mercy Corps sparked the boom by moving their headquarters into the neighborhood, multiplying the daytime population while renovating several blocks of historic buildings in the process. Now with the economy on the uptick, unprecedented private investment has followed.
Three blocks to the southwest of Pine Street Market, the renovation of the Oregon Pioneer Building into a new luxury boutique hotel will add tourism dollars and a couple of new restaurants, while companies like Puppet Labs and AirBnB now call this part of Portland home. Meanwhile, less than two blocks east of Pine Street Market along Waterfront Park, Wyndam Resorts has proposed a six-story timeshare hotel, the first new construction along Waterfront Park in decades. Two blocks north of that, influential Portland developer Gerding Edlen will construct a $37 million six-story mixed-use building that will house 60 units of market rate apartments, two University of Oregon professional programs and the headquarters of Portland architecture giant Ankrom Moisan. Many more developments will come to fruition in the coming months.
