Regarding NW Broadway Corridor... has there been any talk of the Portland Public Market reusing the now-empty Greyhound Station? It's a distinct SOM-designed building and would seem to be very well-suited both inside and outside for a public market with a large interior clear span and covered outdoor canopy. It is admittedly a sketchy location.

It would save a notable landmark piece of architecture. The market could be up and running in relatively short time with quite minor improvements. The bus yard in rear could in the future be built on.

That's an intriguing idea, Jon. I would guess the difficulty would be that whomever owns or comes to own that site will want more density than the station building provides
