The OMSI District will be a one-of-a-kind neighborhood – an inclusive community destination with innovation, culture and science learning at its heart.
A new waterfront education park will honor people and place. It will be the first in the City to restore Tribal presence on the Willamette and create access to the River for all.
The OMSI District will become home. Up to 1,200 new units are planned for individuals and households, with a minimum of 20% of those units being affordable. Mixed use buildings will bring neighbors together alongside restaurants, businesses, Portland Community College, Portland Opera, and a Center for Tribal Nations.
The OMSI District will create sustainable innovation at scale. It will showcase and advance climate solutions through transportation, next generation urban systems and technology and OMSI science learning experiences advocating informed climate action.
The OMSI District is for everyone. For those seeking to play, to learn, to live and to be inspired. Welcome.
A broad and diverse coalition of local entities supports the OMSI District. We are proud to be a part of this dynamic community championing this innovative vision.
