Alberta Commons

Portland, Oregon

Alberta Commons, located in the Alberta District in Northeast Portland on the block bordered by MLK Jr. Boulevard, Alberta Street, Garfield Avenue, and Summer street, is a 25,000 square foot retail center. Developed by Vice President Phillip Brown and his development team, together, working with Prosper Portland, local neighbors, and community activists to bring the Alberta Commons shopping center to existence. After a decade of community debate, Alberta Commons has opened with focus on helping with minority contractor utilization, art, and to ensure a commercial tenanting program for local businesses owned by people of color.
