Two years ago, Building on History recommended that it be resold to a larger institution – possibly Portland State University – as an adjunct campus. While our suggestion seemed to go nowhere, the University of Oregon purchased the site earlier this summer for $47 million, according to county records.
While new ownership is good news for the campus and the neighborhood, it does not answer what happens to the old Concordia athletic facilities. In the early 2000s, Concordia removed 30 nearby houses it had acquired over many years to build attractive all-weather fields for soccer and baseball. The university also has tennis courts and a gymnasium in good condition that seats about 1100 for basketball.
