Evaluate Locations for Mixed-Use Development
In this project, students evaluate areas in Gresham, Oregon, a city of about 100,000 people located east of Portland. They look for suitably-zoned areas where young adults are known to live and where renting is common. Since many of the prospective tenants will commute to Portland, students also look for areas that afford easy access to the city's light-rail system. While these are not the only factors that determine a good site, they are important criteria that will help the company refine its search.
