Nice! I thought those were old dead ideas.

ambitious but they will need some extraordinary marketing to get people immersing their head in the water...i wouldn't do that north of the sellwood bridge. sorry portland the zidell property seems like the best. nice sunny exposure, probably hobo free. the others seem like a boobie prize. noisy freeway, hobo camps and needles nearby. im glad people are using the omsi dock but even there , aren't there no swimming signs posted? the current is too swift under the hawthorne bridge for novice swimmers and hipster day drinkers. sellwood's beach is nice though when its not over run by dogs and hobo pirates...the problem with the willamette is people like sandy bottoms, not mud....

The Japanese Garden expansion is such a great asset for the city. I hope you all go if you have the chance.

I haven't seen the new buildings yet, I am planning on visiting the gardens some time in September when crowds die down a bit.
