Projects are approved by the Gresham Redevelopment Commission (GRDC) and funded with Urban Renewal resources.
The Catalyst Site redevelopment project seeks to build an active, pedestrian-friendly, mixed-use town center in the heart of Rockwood.
In addition to meeting the needs of this highly diverse, growing, young and family-oriented community, the idea is to create a colorful, innovative and authentic destination to attract visitors to Rockwood.
The project is at the site of the former Fred Meyer, 18535 SE Stark St., purchased by the GRDC in 2005 for redevelopment.
The GRDC purchased two adjoining sites, 18801 and 18901 E. Burnside St., after a unanimous vote at its September meeting. These two properties are across from the Catalyst Site.
Urban Renewal and the GRDC plan to develop these properties into mixed-use centers of commerce, service and play, with the intent of enhancing the effect and mission of the Rockwood Rising redevelopment project.
Development on the 2.2 acres will begin after the completion of the Catalyst Site in 2018.
