A happy example exists at the southwest corner of Northeast 15th Avenue and Prescott Street, a funny little jog in the road where a downtown-to-Alameda streetcar line used to end. After the streetcar stopped running, city leaders opted to plant a few trees and lay down pavement rather than rejigger the road or turn the triangle-shaped spot into something useful. — Anna Griffin, The Oregonian
While architect Mark Nye and Architects Without Borders are working on a solution of their own, the Sabin Community Association will be holding a meeting on May 9th to determine what the triangle will become. David Sweet and Rosemarie Cordello, of the Sabin Community Association, had contacted Architects Without Borders to seek assistance on transforming this piece of land into something for the neighborhood. The city-owned property is not on the list of to-dos for local government and are "happy to let neighborhood groups figure out better uses for stretches such as this one" according to the Oregonian.
