The ribbon-cutting of Elizabeth Caruthers Park last Thursday sent a strong signal that the idealized South Waterfront District isn’t completely lost to a stalled economy. Quite the contrary, it looks as though the neighbors are finally moving in, and so is business.
Access remains an issue. The streetcar runs through, but there isn’t a MAX line. Some residents say they prefer the isolation since it keeps things a little more quiet than the bustle of other districts. That could change if the proposed plans for a streetcar line to Lake Oswego through Moody Street gets more serious, but that is still years away.
For now though, signs of progress on the waterfront and the beautiful new park serve as effective distractions from the empty construction sites still waiting for the shovel.
