looks great. That area is a wasteland and this could do wonders.

Bring it on, it's been years since PDX has had a big deal like this to talk about.

Awesome news! I hope that the illustration is true and that this project will give the east side of town a new tallest building that stands out from all the 20ish story structures there now.

I think one of the towers is already there--American Assets Trusts owns the Lloyd 700 Building, which is on that block and appears in the rendering. It looks like the attached parking structure would be demolished, though.

I this the site of Weston's proposed Cosmopolitan Tower that fizzled a few years ago? (And the one before that, The Cascadian or something?)

This better explains why the new streetcar jogs off of MLK and Grand through the Lloyd Center.

It jogs over to 7th to get within two blocks of Lloyd Center Mall, and presumably to tap into the property value of that ~20 block superblock.

7th also has a lot more land that can be used to high densities, and the MAX already provides transportation to that pocket.

It does make sense to swing it east north of I-84, since there is a lot of underutilized property in the area and it don't slow down the route too much.

Hopefully more of the parking lots around the Lloyd Center get redeveloped. I hate the one that's about the size of four blocks on the southeast side of the mall (next to the movie theaters.) An 18 block mall is bad enough, but the surface parking around it really makes it suck.

Every time I'm stuck in the Lloyd Center I feel like I'm back in LA. It's not a pleasant feeling.

In regards to this development and possible future projects: How does one go about lifting the height limitations in downtown/Lloyd District? Can this be undone by the city council?

The KATU comments section makes Oregonlive seem like the London Review of Books letters page.

It will be great to start seeing some real density on the east side. I could see Lloyd in the future being almost an extension of downtown.
