Will Portland Welcome a "One-of-a-Kind Nike Interactive Experience"?

Posted by Sarah Mirk on Thu, Aug 13, 2009 at 10:26 AM

A line from the handout the Blazers passed out at City Council yesterday to describe their vision of "Jumptown" just caught my eye. This is their general redevelopment idea for all of the Rose Quarter, including Memorial Coliseum:

"Jumptown: Portland's Rec Room will be a world-class mixed-use sports and entertainment district in one of Portland's most vibrant neighborhoods. We envision a community gathering place at the intersection of sports, music and entertainment, one that pays homage to the rich musical heritage of Portland's eastside... It will embody the best of Portland's cultural past, present and future through live music events, a variety of residential, hotel and office space, diverse retail and restaurant amenities and a one-of-a-kind Nike interactive experience.”
