The Green Loop is a culminating big idea from the Central City 2035 Plan to address a growing city with increasing diversity, congestion and development. Designed with an equity lens, the Green Loop will create new spaces (while improving and revitalizing existing ones) to provide economic growth opportunities for small businesses and increase pathways for MWESB/ BIPOC business owners.

The Green Loop will create a new place in Portland unlike anything that has come before it. Its unique combination of leafy green canopy, urban pedestrian plazas, comfortable mobility zones and engaged adjacent development will make it a destination or activity in and of itself — creating new reasons for people to visit the city, take a break from a busy day, or stay longer after work enjoy the sights and sounds of a vibrant American metropolis.
