"Cycle-Centric" Apartments Going Up In Portland

Would you choose a place to live based on your bike? That's what builders of a new apartment complex in Portland are hoping a lot of people will do.

What's being called a "cycle-centric" complex is being built in the City's Lloyd district, with 1,200 parking spaces for bikes! The developer says he envisions the complex serving commuters and shoppers in addition to residents, as it's near two bus lines.

Eventually they'd like to include a bicycle valet and an on-site repair service.  Takepart looks at the other amenities this new apartment complex will have.
