Over the years since the mortgage bubble burst, the term “bank” has been a four-letter word and an easy target for the media, the legislature and the general public.

The Oregon Convention Center Phase 1 opened in 1990, and Phase 2 opened in 2003. The Rose Garden opened in 1995, and the last constructed high-rise office building in the Lloyd District opened in 1997.
