Three preliminary design options were presented at a Community Meeting on February 7, 2017, and are available for public review and comment until February 21, 2017. This project is designing the area along the Willamette River between Gibbs Street and the Marquam Bridge. The preliminary design concepts have been developed with involvement from the public, stakeholders, property owners and partner agencies. Portland Parks & Recreation is coordinating this work with Zidell Development (ZRZ), the Portland Development Commission, Portland Bureau of Transportation and the Oregon Health & Science University.

The preliminary design for this section of the South Waterfront Greenway will be incorporated into the Zidell Property Master Plan currently being developed. The Master Plan will thoughtfully transform the 33-acre site that has been home to Zidell Family business operations for nearly 90 years. In 2011, ZRZ performed a $20 million clean-up of their property which included 3,000 liner feet of riverbank restoration from top-of-bank to the river’s edge. The restoration work was based on the 2004 Greenway Development Plan that calls for the creation of an urban riverfront area with vibrant public spaces, trail connections and restored fish and wildlife habitat.
