The Lloyd District – Then and Now

Portland’s New East Side “Downtown”
[divider line_type=”No Line” custom_height=”15″]

In the early 1960s, urban renewal created the Lloyd District; Portland’s version of the “mega-mall” and Memorial Coliseum; the largest sports/entertainment center in the city. Today, the Lloyd District is in transition.

Join me for an easy urban stroll in this NE Portland neighborhood that the city of Portland hopes to transform into another high density, livable urban enclave. With several high-rise residential projects underway, the Lloyd District is poised to become Portland’s new east side “downtown”.

We’ll also learn about two ambitious entrepreneurs, Ben Holladay (1819-1887) and Ralph Lloyd (1875-1953), whose legacies live on; in name and in spirit.
