Projects are SBA 504 eligible, up to 90% financing at low fixed rates for 20 years. The city’s revolving loan program is available for gap financing assistance.
An Environmentally Friendly Campus
Low impact design techniques are incorporated into the Portland Technology Park - reduced impervious surfaces, use of gravel wetlands and underdrain soil filters (to minimize the impact to the natural hydrology of the park), and natural woodland features preserved throughout the site.
The Park’s Design Guidelines direct that the solar orientation of buildings be maximized and their performance levels be consistent with the city’s Green Building Ordinance. They encourage the use of native plant and tree species while discouraging the use of maintained lawn areas.
The park is connected to four miles of trails throughout almost 200 acres of adjacent protected open space. The Fore River Sanctuary and surrounding woodlands constitute one of the city’s greatest natural treasures, with saltwater marshes, mature upland forest, a waterfall, and the remains of the Cumberland and Oxford Canal. This open space provides a unique resource for employees at the park as well as for the community.
