South Waterfront news and updates...long overdue!

So much is changing around the neighborhood, it's hard to keep up. Here is a rundown of a few of the things that took place this past year:

  • The Ella opened
  • Tilikum Crossing, Bridge of the People, was born
  • The Oregon Ballet arrived
  • Muselet (lovely and delicious) opened and closed
  • The Groaning Board eventually closed, and Al Hawr moved in
  • The Osprey opened this fall offering "retreat-style living"
  • The orange BikeTown bikes are in the wild, and you can't miss 'em
  • A slew of new food carts, including Smaaken waffle sandwiches came... and then the Gantry closed
  • Cavalia took over the Zidell lot for the summer
  • Wesley Matthews moved away
  • Robin Lopez moved away
  • Countrywide insurance company moved in
  • Orange Theory fitness opened
  • StyleFront closed
  • RidePDX is here
  • Huge cranes rolled in and construction began on OHSU's next building
  • What's the Scoop? New ice cream shop in the Riva
  • Blue Star Donuts in the Riva
  • Heart Pizza in the Riva
  • A real estate frenzy

  • And WHEN will someone, anyone, open a neighborhood pub? Menu: burgers, salads, flatbread pizzas and local brews and wine... Not looking for anything fancy, just a regular pub fare lunch and dinner, family-friendly, watch the game, stop by after work for happy hour kind of place. I've heard this from so many neighbors over the years, but especially now.
