The Zidell family has revealed their master plan for developing their property in Portland's South Waterfront.

The family has long operated a shipyard in the South Waterfront, where it still builds barges. But its 33 acres of mostly vacant land -- between TriMet's under-construction Portland-Milwaukie Light Rail Bridge and the aerial tram -- is the largest chunk of developable land in the city.

"We have the potential to build the types and sizes of buildings not available anywhere else," said Matt French, the great-grandson of Zidell Cos. founder Sam Zidell, and managing director the family's real estate firm.

Their master plan calls for 27 buildings and 3 to 3.5 million square feet of indoor space. Like the rest of the South Waterfront, much of the space will likely be residential with ground floor retail. But the plan also calls for a high-density, office-heavy north end near the light rail connections coming over the bridge.

Five years in the making, the Portland Mercado — the city’s first Latino public market — will celebrate its grand opening April 11. A $3.5 million public-private partnership spearheaded by Hacienda CDC, the market will house 15 to 20 businesses in the food, retail and service sectors. It has some big-name funders, including the Paul G. Allen Family Foundation and JPMorgan Chase. The project goals are equally ambitious: to improve cross-cultural understanding, alleviate poverty and spur community economic development.
