PAC seeks funding for Gateway Transit Center garage


At last month’s Opportunity Gateway Program Advisory Committee, or PAC, the Portland Development Commission’s Sara King discussed strategies for funding a new parking garage at the Gateway Transit Center. The project has been an identified community priority since 1999, King said, and has been pushed to the fore by a transaction with the Oregon Clinic. The Oregon Clinic, in partnership with the Gerding/Edlen Development Company, plans to build a $24 million headquarters building on the southern end of the Gateway Transit Center parking lot. To compensate for the spaces lost and provide for the new structure, PDC will build a two-story, 610-space parking garage on the north end. The Portland Office of Transportation and the Oregon Clinic will contribute to the structure’s $8 million cost, King said, but right now $6 million would have to come from Gateway urban renewal funds.

“We’re desperately looking for other funding sources so we can use the urban renewal funds for other priorities,” King said. One possible source of money is federal transportation funds through Metro.

In a related matter, King said that Oregon Clinic’s building would be four stories high in its first phase, rather than the three stories originally planned for and in spite of the fact that the space isn’t needed right now. The larger building partially met the concerns of some PAC members that a key location might be under-used.
