FlashForward 3: Sporthaven



Today's mini-update focuses on the Sporthaven complex of stadiums. First, here's an overview of the complex:


Sporthaven was built in the late 1970s on what used to be part of the Port of Nyhaven, as well as some adjacent industrial blocks. After the shipping industry switched from break-bulk to containers, Port Brunsmjöd was built just north of Kendall, downriver from Nyhaven. As a result, shipping traffic at the Port of Nyhaven suffered a massive decline, as the only ships to keep using it were barges on the Columbia River coming from ports further inland. The port abandoned much of its waterfront, which the city then bought and redeveloped into Sporthaven.


Three of Nyhaven's five professional sports teams play their home games at venues in Sporthaven: the Regals (baseball, at Rittenberg Field, top), the Thunderbirds (American football, at Buechner Stadium, center), and the Killer Whales (ice hockey, at Kungsbank Arena, bottom). All three venues are on Buechner Avenue, named for car manufacturer Buechner Limited (whose main factory is across the street from the stadium that bears its name).


Nyhaven's cruise ship terminal is also located at Sporthaven, across from Rittenberg Field and Parking Structure 4. The ships that dock here tour both the Columbia River and the Pacific coast.
