East Portland

Interesting
East Portland, divided by East Burnside Street into Northeast and Southeast sections, has dozens of small, pleasant neighborhoods but far fewer tourist attractions than the Westside. When it opened in 1960, Lloyd Center (N.E. Multnomah St. at N.E. 9th Ave.) was one of the first covered shopping malls in the country. Memorial Coliseum (1 Center Ct.), designed by Skidmore, Owings and Merrill and completed the same year, serves as a venue for sports events, concerts and trade shows. The completion of the east-west light-rail system in 1987 brought the two sides of the city closer together and was instrumental in the development of the 1990 Oregon Convention Center (777 N.E. Martin Luther King Blvd.), with its tapered twin glass spires, and the giant, oyster-shaped Rose Garden Arena, built for the Portland Trail Blazers.
