Vista Business Park
JOHNSON ECONOMICS prepared a market analysis for the Port of Portland’s 203-acre Vista Business Park. The analysis evaluated the demand for industrial space by product type, as well as projected market balance and achievable pricing. In addition, the analysis evaluated the appropriateness of current zoning on the site and recommended modifications. The firm was subsequently hired to prepare a marketing strategy for the Park as an Eco-Industrial concept, including identification of targeted industries and strategic approaches to market the Park. Later work included a market study for large-format distribution space for Specht Development.
