Welcome to the South Waterfront
The South Waterfront District—Portland's newest urban neighborhood—is one of the most well-developed, located just south of the RiverPlace Marina. Lovely walking trails wind along the river, native gardens sprout between beautifully modern buildings, and eateries of all ilk have popped up throughout this new neighborhood. In early winter, you can check out the Portland Winter Light Festival, which spans the Tilikum Crossing and is held at both OMSI and Zidell Yards. Doggy parks, shopping and juice companies and more abound–in other words, everything you’d expect from a thriving Portland neighborhood. Portlanders wanting to get a feel for their changing city and visitors alike will benefit from a day trip to this burgeoning community and enjoy all it offers. Continue reading on The Urban Digest
Javier Hurtado came to Portland from Mexico at the age of sixteen and set out to build the most Sustainable and Authentic Mexican Taqueria in Portland. Now, with seven locations all around Portland, Cha! Cha! Cha! partners with local farmers that share their commitments to using sustainable and environmentally friendly agricultural practices. Oh, and by the way, the food is muy deliciosa!
What's not to like about fresh, cooked-to-order burgers and fries? Founded in Portland in 2010, Little Big Burger has gained quite the following. In fact, the restaurant is so popular, its expanding its locations across Portland and onto Seattle, Austin and So Cal. Nice!
With locations in Tigard, Lake Oswego and elsewhere in Portland – including the airport, visitors will be happy to know – it’s safe to say Bambuza Vietnam Kitchen is doing well for itself. Its menu is bursting with charmingly updated Vietnamese options, from spring rolls and noodles to fruit-studded salads and famous Bahn Mi sandwiches. Perfect for lunch or dinner, you can’t go wrong eating here.
South Waterfront's Connection to Portland
The Zidell family has made clear for some time its intention to ultimately transform its 33-acre riverside property, demarked by Tilikum Crossing to the north, the South Waterfront Central District to the south, and Moody Avenue to the west. The decision to phase out, after some 55 years, its boatmaking activities—which had been expected to continue even in the face of redevelopment—has been followed by a more detailed picture of how that property, now called the Zidell Yards, may look in the coming decades.
Zidell Yards is at the nexus of one of Portland’s brightest-glowing geographies: not just the South Waterfront itself, but also the fast-changing Central Eastside across the river. To the immediate north of the Zidell Yards lies the Oregon Health & Science University’s Schnitzer Campus, crowned by the Collaborative Life Sciences Building and Skourtes Tower that opened in 2014. The Schnitzer Campus—which marks part of the western anchor of the trans-Willamette Portland Innovation Quadrant—will, by 2018, gain the $160-million Knight Cancer Research Building.
In 2015, Tilikum Crossing opened as a cutting-edge light-rail span also accommodating TriMet, pedestrians, and cyclists but closed to cars—the only such bridge in the U.S.
The Zidell Yards' southern boundary, meanwhile, lies in the shadow of the Central District high-rises that arose in the mid-2000s, including a nest of apartment towers and OHSU’s Center for Health and Healing at the base of the Portland Aerial Tram (celebrating its 10-year anniversary in 2017).
In short, the Zidell Yards lie squarely in the heart of one of Portland’s—and the country’s—most ambitious inner-city reimaginings, easily on par with the Northwest Industrial Triangle's morph into the Pearl District. In a comprehensive 2015 piece on the South Waterfront for Portland Monthly, Nancy Rommelmann labeled the Zidell land “central Portland’s last great tabula rasa for urban placemaking.” Continue reading on The Urban Digest.
