PDC updates plans at open meeting
Plans by the Portland Development Commission to develop a long-vacant lot on Martin Luther King Boulevard and Alberta Street are moving forward with many of the same players involved before a community protest caused grocer Trader Joes to pull out of the bidding. PDC Executive Director Patrick Quinton announced at an open community meeting at the adjacent Curious Comedy club last Wednesday evening that California developer Majestic Realty Co. and local minority contractor Colas Construction would be staying on board as participants in the venture.
