For the Central Eastside Industrial District, the times are changing. Because of its location across from downtown Portland, there is pressure for more commercial and residential development. After many delays, the Portland Development Commission and Beam Development are ready to proceed with Burnside Bridgehead. Cascade Energy has leased 25,000 square feet in the older Convention Plaza and there will be a major renovation. Cascade is a growing employer and may expand in the building. Similar clean tech businesses are sought for Convention Plaza. This start should provide the impetus to develop available adjacent lots.
