The Convention District
Schlesinger Companies is the master developer of The Convention District, an exciting multi-block mixed use project in Portland’s east side. The Convention District will capitalize on the project’s proximity to the Rose Garden Arena, the Memorial Coliseum, the Oregon Convention Center, and Lloyd Center shopping mall. This central location is also unparalleled in terms of accessibility, with an off-ramp from the I-84 freeway at the site, as well as two TriMet Max Light Rail stops. In addition, the Convention District also includes a new private street – Hassalo Place – linking NE Multnomah Street with NE Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, and providing safe and convenient access to both the Hyatt Regency and The Union.
The Union Apartments
The first phase of this master development was completed when The Union apartments, a residential mixed use project, opened in 2015. The 6-story Union contains 186 market-rate apartments, over 5,000 square feet of ground floor retail space, including a Starbucks Café, and over 100 underground parking stalls.
Hyatt Regency Portland Convention Center Hotel
The Union Apartments will be joined in 2019 by the largest hotel on Portland’s eastside: the proposed 440,000 square foot Hyatt Regency Portland Convention Center Hotel, Oregon’s only full service Hyatt hotel, and an adjacent 400 space mixed use parking structure owned by PDC. The 14-story Hyatt Regency Portland will contain 600 guest rooms, approximately 32,000 square feet of ballroom and meeting space – including two ballrooms, a bar/lounge, a restaurant and retail space. Adjacent to the Hyatt Regency will be a parking mixed-use project, primarily to serve the Hyatt, but also to be used by visitors and guests of the many other adjacent facilities. The parking structure will also contain almost 15,000 square feet of ground floor office space and retail space.
