MLK boulevard in the news.

The Oregonian has a new article discussing Portland Development Commission projects that are going forward at this time, and those that are stalled because of funding issues. The article includes  several sites on MLK Boulevard, including the long-rumored 24 Hour Fitness at MLK and Alberta, which is listed as “delayed.” That now-empty block, of course, sits directly across Alberta from the building undergoing rehabilitation that will hold It’s About Me Fitness.

Also, a nice review of belly (in the King’s Crossing building at Fremont and MLK) ran in last week’s Oregonian. Read it here. A review of Bridges appears on this website; the author is right about Bridges’ incredibly tasty bacon.
