Blame it on the eight seasons of “Portlandia” or simply on the way people rave about the city when they return from visiting. Portland is experiencing a hotel boom. Collectively, the recent wave in hotel development has resulted in an increase in room inventory of nearly 50 percent since 2016.

 

Construction has been completed on the striking new Gerry Frank/Salem Rotary Amphitheater.

Located in Riverfront Park, Salem’s premier downtown venue for outdoor events, the $4-milion amphitheater is a joint project of the City of Salem and the Rotary Club of Salem. CBTWO Architects based the structure’s sweeping wood “basket-weave” concept on the open-weave baskets of the Kalapuya Native American Tribe, whose history is an integral part of Riverfront Park’s land and culture.
