Architectural Heritage Center says
Throughout the early 1900’s, California landowner and oil magnate Ralph B. Lloyd (1875–1953) invested millions of dollars into an undeveloped portion of Portland’s East Side known as Holladay’s Addition. When the Great Depression derailed initial plans for this property, Lloyd turned to federal and state agencies to sustain his commercial real estate business. Please join us as historian and author Michael R. Adamson explores the role that public capital played in materializing the area west of Holladay Park as a nascent corporate office park, which literally prepared the ground for the Lloyd Center, a regional shopping center that opened in 1960, seven years after Lloyd’s death.
