The approximately 32,500 feet worth of properties are bounded by Northwest Everett Street, Northwest Davis Street, Northwest Ninth Avenue and Northwest 10th Avenue according to the Portland Business Journal.

“We’re bullish on Portland’s future, even though we’re going through what we’ve gone through,” said Greg Goodman, co-president of DDG.

This adds to the properties that the Goodman family and their affiliates have interest in including 230 Ash, 11W, Crown Plaza, the Union Bank of California building, the Pioneer Park Building and Portal Industrial Center Phase II. The Goodman family also holds an interest in a number of parking structures and surface lots.
