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.
