PORTLAND, Ore. — The plans for creating a re-invented OMSI district on Southeast Portland’s waterfront is one step closer to reality.
The city of Portland design commission has approved the OMSI district master plan, which would transform a 10-block industrial area into a neighborhood incorporating hubs for innovation, arts, culture and science learning.
The neighborhood would add up to 1,200 units of new housing with a minimum of 20% of units for low-income families.
A waterfront education park would be featured in collaboration with tribal governments and indigenous communities.
