Portland Downtown Condos devises plans for South Waterfront’s first park
The Portland Development Commission said it has begun the process of siting the South Waterfront district’s first public park.
PDC said demolition of buildings at a public storage site will begin in late April.
The project’s first phase, set for completion this July, will include a perimeter sidewalk, a large open-space lawn, improved adjacent streets and temporary streetlights.
Park developers will remove the low levels of contaminants found around the site. The cleanup is funded by a $200,000 U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Brownfields Cleanup grant.
The park will contain a historic marker commemorating Portland’s first log cabin, which sat near the park’s site.
PDC expects the park to be fully developed in the next four years.
