Land Use Option 3 - Hybrid District
- 100' minimum river setback plus 7.5 acres of riverfront parks
that create an average river setback of 200' (in green).
- Restoration of former wetlands at the west end of Sullivan's Gulch
(where the I-5/I-84 interchange now sits) and where Stark Street meets

view of Mt. Hood from Salmon Street Springs on the west side.
- Mid-rise housing of 4 - 7 stories between the 100'
setback and 1st Avenue (in orange).

Salmon and Taylor streets to further define the 2.5 acre park
and frame the view towards downtown (see perspective view).

- The new aquarium sits on the waterfront at the west
end of Stark Street (in purple).
- A mix of uses within new and old buildings between 1st Avenue and
3rd Avenue and along the enhanced streets (in blue and orange hatching).
- Grocery stores at Hawthorne and 1st and Stark and MLK (in red).
- A corridor of employment (in blue) along the MLK/Grand couplet,
mixing historic buildings
with new buildings similar in scale to those found in the Lloyd District.

of 1st Avenue between the aquarium and Hawthorne (strips of red).
- Smart-park garages with ground floor retail at approximately
half mile intervals (in pink).
