South Waterfront is Oregon’s first green neighborhood and the largest green development in the country. The entire neighborhood uses innovative energy saving and water conservation techniques to minimize the neighborhood’s impact on the environment. From the bioswale filtration to LEED certified buildings and energy- efficient Portland Aerial Tram, living in South Waterfront is good for you, and the planet.
South Waterfront is now also safe for salmon; a PHD level panel of experts tested the South Waterfront district and have certified the central neighborhood as Salmon Safe. This certification is a reflection of the neighborhood’s commitment to responsible management practices that reduce storm water runoff and non-point source pollution, helping to protect Pacific Northwest salmon watersheds.
