New development along transit corridors in South East Portland hit a rare speed bump when the Oregon Land Use Board of Appeals halted construction on an eighty-one-unit project.

The recent surge of construction along so-called transit route such as Belmont, Hawthorne, and Division have left many south east neighbors feeling left out of the discussion.
