WHPacific assisted with the rezone, comprehensive plan amendment, master planning and creation of design details for the Hoyt Street Yards, a 40-acre piece of prime urban real
estate in the heart of downtown Portland. Hoyt Street Yards is now called the “Pearl District”, and is a world-renowned arts district. Its mix of residential / commercial including lofts,
restaurants, galleries and other local businesses keeps it buzzing day and night. Working initially with Glacier Park Company beginning in 1996, WHPacific’s land development specialists (including land use planners, landscape architects, surveyors and civil engineers) assisted in the master plan for the 40-acre site; thus creating the future design standards for the Pearl District’s curb, gutters and sidewalks, streetscape, street lighting, parks and open spaces.
