- South Waterfront
The South Waterfront (or SoWa) is a new high-rise district under construction on former
brownfieldindustrial land in the South Portland neighborhood south of downtown Portland, Oregon. It is one of the largest urban redevelopment projects in the United States. SoWa is connected to downtown Portland by an extension of the Portland Streetcar, and to the Oregon Health and Sciences Universitycampus atop Marquam Hill by the Portland Aerial Tram.
The South Waterfront is part of the
Portland Development Commission's North Macadam Urban Renewal District. The first phase of the South Waterfront is the $1.9 billion "River Blocks" development. Construction began in early 2004. The full build-out of the district envisions many residential (primarily condominiums) and medical research towers ranging in height from 6 stories to 35+ stories.

OHSU Center for Health & Healing, the condominium twin Meriwether Towersat 21 and 24 stories, the 31-story condominium John Ross Tower, and the 22-story Atwater Placecondominium tower. The sixth tower in the district, the 31-story apartments The Ardeahas topped out, but is not scheduled to be completed until late 2008.
Two other buildings are currently under construction; the 30-story
Mirabella Towerwhich will be the districts first senior living community and The Alexanwhich is a 22-story condominium tower. The five floor Matisse buildings have been proposed and are due to begin construction sometime in 2008, they will be the districts first rental apartment buildings.
