Subject: [CPEO-BIF] North Portland , Oregon site - after 34 years
North Portland brownfield development closer to completion

After 34 years, a four-year advisory committee process and two attempts to find a development team, the city is finally making headway on efforts to revitalize a former brownfield site in North Portland.

City Council on Wednesday voted unanimously to accept the development proposal of Woolley Nyanneco LLC for the former gas station site at 8735 N. Lombard St. The team is made up of local developers Jeana Woolley and Roslyn Hill, Portland architect Tom Johnson and Portland-based design firm Bloc Design Development.

The team proposes construction of two LEED platinum buildings along Lombard Street with a public space/alleyway in between that leads back to the existing racquet center. There would be 8,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space along Lombard Street and the alleyway, with 9,200 square feet of second-level residential space. The team is also toying with the idea of adding live-work space and affordable housing units to the development.
