Portland Business Journal editor, Rob Smith, will be in studio for our regular business update  Here are some of the topics we’ll be looking at:

  • Renewed interest in reviving Portland’s Rose Quarter area after the arena’s recent name change 
  • How a change in leadership has improved the Urban League of Portland‘s reputation in the business community and helped to lower jobless and poverty rates among African Americans
  • The large number of tech firms in need of office space that have moved into Portland’s business district, and the rise in commercial rent
