Is Portland going to have a post-recession recession when all these apartments open at once, the land becomes overvalued and everyone leaves? Or are we just going to keep becoming San Francisco?
Just enough to not build parking!
Also, does this signal the beginning of the end for PDX's lerv affair with cart pods? Because the time has clearly come where the land is worth more than the carts can pay.
Gentrify this, bitches.
So long SE Portland.
Welp, guess it's time to move to Vancouver.
Bitch all you want about becoming Seattle or whatever, but if you don't have a better solution for meeting housing demand, I can't see any reason to take your complaints seriously.
Thing is, when I was growing up here (and correct me if I'm wrong people who have been here longer) my Brooklyn neighborhood was kind of the first place new "transplants" were moving into. It was cheap for artists and musicians (for context I live right across the street from what used to be the Brooklyn skate park) I'm fine with evicting/pricing out the riff raff artists like myself who like to accidentally wake up parents who have big boy/girl jobs, because I'll need to talk to a doctor some day I'm sure, but getting rid of that food cart pod is removing a big part of the cultural dichotomy that made this neighborhood a desirable place for young families in the first place. So to all you parents with a baby in the "Slayer" onesie who liked to pet the goats or have easy access to a free skatepark or french fries within stumbling distance to home on your night out: Y'all been fucked.
Goodbye food carts and live music venues. Yeah- inner SE PDX is officially lame until the next recession/and or riots.
