So great to see development pressure in the central city finally make blocks like this buildable. 15 stories, no less. Added bonus: the giant billboard that will come down. Fingers crossed that we see shovels before the next economic contraction strikes.

I think that area needs a legitimate neighborhood name with all these buildings getting built. I seriously never thought I would ever get to see that area get built up with towers like we are seeing.

"Bridgehead"?

Would be really nice to see IH (IZ) in this area.

Historically it was East Portland, a separate city with Grand Avenue serving as a main street, but east Portland today refers to a huge area of the city. Maybe the newly named district should be "Grand", related to the East Portland/Grand Avenue Historic District.

We have a West End, so perhaps "East End", or "East Bank"?

^Or in following with the precious gems theme (i.e. Pearl and Jade Districts) perhaps this could be the Amethyst or Garnet or Topaz or Fuchsite District.

I personally miss the 4 letter district names. Anyone remember when they were going to call this area LoBu (Lower Burnside) to go with SoWa, NoPo and NoLo (North of Lovejoy)? In that vein I like GoHo for Goose Hollow and PiHi for Pill Hill...but I digress...

This whole district is going to keep expanding east and south over time, isn't it?
