Portland research Vast new areas of Portland have been radically transformed during the last decade.

PORTLAND, OR—Portland has come and grown a long way in the last 10 years. The previous decade began in a deep recession and ended with a booming economy. Along the way, the region has been labeled with many bests: economy, place to start a business, food city, commuting city, airport, etc.

For these reasons, the Portland metro is widely revered as a desirable play to live, work and play, according to Cushman & Wakefield’s Changing Skyline, which covers development trends and the impact of Portland’s commercial real estate sector during the past decade.
