Located on the Willamette river in Portland's south waterfront. The Z event space offers 30 acres of outdoor space and over 100,000 square feet of covered industrial space at the former Zidell shipyards property.
The south waterfront is one of the largest urban redevelopment projects in the United States connected to downtown Portland by streetcar and light rail with additional access by bike path, aerial tram and surface street. With over 100 years of business in Portland, Zidell Marine is a staple of the Portland business community. The Z event space is the latest of a long history of repurposing for environmental and community benefit. With the final ship being launched in 2017, the property is now a multi-purpose event space hosting events ranging from private dinners to larger festivals.
