2022 January Forum: Portland's Next Construction Boom



2022 January Forum: Portland's Next Construction Boom

PDX is in the midst of a massive expansion. The I-5 Columbia Crossing and Rose Quarter projects, with funding from the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, represent a generational investment in our region’s transportation system. And the proposed re-development of the Broadway Corridor, OMSI District, and Lloyd Center are moving through the development pipeline.

The Portland Business Alliance kicks off 2022 with a panel discussion on the prospects and potential impact of these massive construction projects. What will it take to bring these projects to fruition? What are the economic and social benefits of construction? And what are stakeholders doing to ensure equity in project development to ensure we don’t repeat mistakes of the past? Representatives from the organizations driving these current and proposed construction projects share their insights on what could be a very exciting chapter in the construction of Portland.

This months panel of experts:
  • Alando Simpson, Owner/CEO, COR Recycling & Vice Chair, Oregon Transportation Commission
  • Kimberly Branam, Executive Director, Prosper Portland
  • Erin Graham, President & CEO, OMSI
  • Curtis Robinhold, Executive Director, Port of Portland
