Kaven + Co. and William / Kaven Architecture recently unveiled additional renderings and a conceptual plan for the proposed redevelopment of Portland’s Broadway Corridor. The conceptual plan, which would provide approximately 5 million square feet of new development, consists of multiple high-rise buildings with a mix of uses that includes retail, office, hospitality and residential. The bold concept would reconnect Union Station to the Pearl District by removing the Broadway ramp and subsequently create a pedestrian-centric district organized around an extension of the North Park Blocks. Further, Kaven + Co.’s vision integrates the potential for a marquee transportation hub for high-speed rail and underground mass public transit innovations adjacent to Amtrak’s Union Station.

Partner Daniel Kaven discusses the recent USPS site acquisition and the potential it offers in the Daily Journal of Commerce:
"The acquisition by Prosper Portland of the U.S. Postal Service headquarters in the Pearl District was made under the pretext of immediate redevelopment by a yet-to-be-determined private group. These 12 city blocks represent an unparalleled opportunity to recast our strategy for urban design and the brand of our city in the eyes of the world."Read More
