Lloyd Center Mall
The beautifully engineered stairway on the East Mall at Lloyd Center. Some history from its Wikipedia entry:
The mall opened August 1, 1960 in its original 100-store, open-aired configuration. Upon opening, it was certainly the largest shopping center in Portland (and in the Northwest region). It claimed to be the largest in the world at the time, but in fact had already been surpassed by the Lakewood Center of Lakewood, California (1951), and the Roosevelt Field Mall of Garden City, New York (1956). Although very close to the downtown retail core, Lloyd Center was the first major retail development to seriously challenge it, aimed almost exclusively at commuters utilizing Portland's then-growing freeway system.Mall history: 1960 - present
The mall's layout and decor were outdated by the 1990's, which saw a major renovation that enclosed the mall, added new anchor and retail space, and a food court.
