Innovation with Clean Diesel Construction


When I hear that a real estate project is faced with environmental issues, the first thought that comes to mind is not one of compromise and collaboration. Instead I imagine pitchfork yielding activists, greedy developers and irresponsible landowners. But in 2013 I was involved in a project that completely turned that stereotype on its head.

Toward the end of 2012, Con-way (the owner of approximately 20 acres of mostly undeveloped surface parking lots in northwest Portland) obtained an approval from the City of Portland for a comprehensive Master Plan of its northwest Portland campus. The Master Plan provides for flexible development on the Con-way site to create a vibrant pedestrian friendly, mixed-use neighborhood.
