Location Update

Posted by Ian Williams (Creator)

Hey KS Fam,

Just wanted to send you all a quick update on the location, and to let you know that I'm still pushing hard to make this thing happen. Thanks everybody for your continued support! Still quite a bit to go so please keep spreading the word!

Over the last few days I've had an opportunity to meet with the Portland Development Commission (PDC) in regards to the available locations and upcoming neighborhood growth. I promise you that things are looking really positive! Here's a few pictures of what we've been working on.

A large part of the projected growth for Deadstock and Chinatown is based around the hotels, hostels, and condos coming to the neighborhood over the next couple years. Airbnb, SquareSpace and other young, progressive tech companies are on their way in too.

Pensole is one of five educational institutions in the district. With a lack of inspiring community spaces close for students we will surely have success here.
