The new headquarters for Ride Connection, a nonprofit that provides transportation options for the elderly and individuals with disabilities, is located in Portland’s emerging Gateway Urban Renewal District. Previously dispersed over several locations, the nonprofit now resides in the ground level commercial space at Glisan Commons, an innovative mixed-use development also designed by Holst. The development adds a unique layer of transit options for those living onsite or nearby.
