Neighborhood planning -- Oregon -- Portland, Community development -- Oregon -- Portland, Street-railroads -- Oregon -- Portland, Local transit -- Planning -- Oregon -- Portland
The purpose of this document is to propose a framework for future development that result in a connected and integrated collection of neighborhoods that form the larger University District. Design Principles guide the proposed Concept Plan. Improving multi-modal transit corridors will result in a more seamless transition between neighborhoods. Key objectives of the study include:
- Completing the fabric: Connect adjacent neighborhoods through meaningful design
- Erasing edges: Overcome barriers created by large-scale infrastructure
- Connections, continuity and accessibility: Create a connected community for all users
- Extending the urban core: Redesign areas for a more urban, vital experience
- Global knowledge exchange: Use the universities as a catalyst for innovation
This project was conducted under the supervision of Donald J. Stastny and Edward Starkie.
