PORTLAND, Or. (CelebrityAccess) — Live Nation is reportedly eyeing a property in Portland’s South Waterfront as the potential home for a new 10,000-seat amphitheater.
According to Portland NBC affiliate KGW, The Zidell family, owner of Zidell Yards, one of the last undeveloped properties on the waterfront, are working with the promoter-giant to build a temporary outdoor venue with a seven-year lease.
The Oregonian reported that the plan was presented to the property’s neighbors on Monday, but still requires the city to sign off before it can proceed.
The property, which is located between the Ross Island Bridge and Tilikum Crossing, has previously hosted public events including food festivals, and a touring equestrian event, as well as the Project Pabst music festival, the Oregonian reported.
“Our vision for Zidell Yards has always included a strong, vibrant and energetic arts and culture element,” Jay Zidell in a statement. “We believe this project is consistent with this vision and a great interim use for the property.”
The next step for the proposed amphitheater is a South Waterfront Greenway review and a design review. If the new shed comes to fruition, it will be one of the largest concert spaces in Portland, behind only the Moda Center, which boasts a concert capacity of about 18,000.
