Oregon Metro and TriMet (Portland, Oregon)
As part of the planning of a proposed light rail corridor in Portland, ECONorthwest used MapCraft to identify transit-oriented development opportunities and help develop an equitable development corridor strategy. To complete this work, ECONorthwest combined real estate analyses with more than 50 metrics on displacement, affordable housing, mobility, and health in 180 subareas along the corridor. Using MapCraft Labs, ECONorthwest calculated subarea indexes for gentrification, affordable housing, access to opportunity, mobility, and health and security. The final outcome of the project was an index that will allow Oregon Metro to geographically target equitable development tools to different areas along the corridor.
