Growth can mean a lot of things to different people. So what does it mean to be integral in the development of this world-renowned, urban neighborhood? HOYT has thoughtfully considered this question since striking the first Development Agreement with the City of Portland in 1997.

A few ideas:

  • Demonstrate your commitment to smart growth through action.
  • Seek inspiration from your neighbors.
  • Make certain the masterplan fosters safety, sustainability and re-imagination.

The striking thing about the Pearl District (at least one of them), is how harmonious this thriving neighborhood continues to be—for residents, business owners, visitors and developers. It’s exemplary of how growth and development can be for the betterment of a community. And how that vision can extend far beyond neighborhood zones, and into the world. Today, the transformation continues. From the significant architecture, the diversity of thriving residential communities, creative cultures, shops and services, non-profits, to the open expanses of gardens and parks—this is growth thoughtfully designed for tomorrow.
