Around the Village: Summer in the City

Update: Opening postponed by City. Something blue is happening in southwest Portland, Oregon. Yves Edmond Le Meitour is developing at SW 35th Ave and Multnomah Blvd. The busy blue corner is easily spotted with its produce stand and food carts.

Talking with Meitour after he recently relocated from his gallery on SW Capitol Hwy in the Village, he describes making a space about the community, one where it can cluster. Check out the Multnomah Village French Quarter corner.
