PORTLAND-SOUTH PORTLAND SMART CORRIDOR PLAN VISIONING
MORRILL'S CORNER + DEERING OAKS
ALA collaborated with Studio Verde, ALTA Planning, and WSP/Parsons to visualize multi-modal transportation and streetscape enhancements for a central corridor in Portland. The team's birds-eye graphic simulations of Morrils Corner and Deering Oaks intersections provide new tools for planners and agencies to understand the opportunities for future development. Visual studies such as the above were a streamlined way to communicate the spatial dynamics and potential evolution of complex environments. The team also provided smart corridor node mapping and recommendations for land use and urban design, as well as the placement of sidewalk oriented development, bike lane striping and planting buffers.
