Survey and assessment work for the 10th and Yamhill garage renovation has already begun, and engineering and design activities will start in 2017. Part of the project will involve reconfiguring the ground floor retail space to align with today’s retailer needs and make other improvements, including ADA access and upgrades to building systems.
The Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) and the Portland Development Commission (PDC) have been working with existing ground floor tenants to keep them apprised of the project scope and timeline. In addition, the Downtown Retail Advocate will be an ongoing resource to assist tenants in identifying available space in the downtown core and adjacent Old Town / Chinatown. Each of the existing tenants will have an opportunity to apply to lease retail space at the garage post-renovation. As the businesses find new locations, PBOT, PDC and the Portland Business Alliance (PBA) will share that information on this website.
