Lincoln Station Development Strategy

Lincoln Station Development Strategy

In September 2015, light rail service will be extended, connecting downtown Portland to Milwaukie and adding a new light rail station on SW Lincoln St. Lincoln Station is located within the South of Market (SoMa) Ecodistrict adjacent to the Lawrence Halprin Open Space Sequence, and creates an important link between the largest Oregon university and the South Waterfront.  There is significant development capacity in the vicinity of the future Lincoln Station, creating an opportunity for transit oriented development that encourages transit ridership and adds vibrancy to south downtown. At nearly four acres, the PSU-owned University Place Hotel is the largest adjacent site with development potential.

TriMet and Portland State University partnered to complete the Lincoln Station Market Study and Strategic Development Plan, which explores development capacity through market analysis, generating a plan for viable development. A consultant team, led by Johnson Economics, managed this $150,000 planning project.

The final report will be used to explore opportunities with the development community.
