In the early 1960s, urban renewal created the Lloyd Center shopping mall and Memorial Coliseum; the largest sports/entertainment center in the city. Today, the Lloyd District is in transition. Join me for an easy urban stroll in this NE Portland neighborhood that the city of Portland hopes to transform into another high density, livable urban enclave. With several high-rise residential projects now completed, the Lloyd District is poised to become Portland's new east side "downtown".
We'll also learn about two ambitious entrepreneurs, Ben Holladay [masked]) and Ralph Lloyd [masked]), whose legacies live on; in name and in spirit.
