29 Aug Sick of Portland Changing? Too Bad. Here Are 7 Places Where This City Could Soon Go Big.

They could radically alter the face of both sides of the Willamette River.

Portland is in a construction frenzy.

The horizon is thick with cranes: 32 at last count, more than all but four other U.S. cities. As many as 10,000 hardhat jobs remain unfilled, The Oregonian reported last month. Developers will add a projected 6,500 apartments to the metro area this year.

All this change tends to unsettle some Portlanders.

Brace yourselves: Even bigger changes are on the way.

A handful of large-scale projects are expected to break ground in the next five years, and they could radically alter the face of both sides of the Willamette River. They could change Portlanders’ commutes, and the jobs where they work. And these few projects could have an outsized effect on the cost of housing.
