Portland, OR
Scale: 150,000SF
Program: Office / Mixed-use

We created a contemporary industrial campus for Portland’s Central Eastside. The scheme includes three mixed use buildings that combine industrial office, maker space, and ground level retail.  The three-block configuration forms an interconnected industrial promenade that supports the needs of ground level industrial tenants while also making space for large public events in Portland’s central eastside.

The Industrial Promenade functions as part loading zone part pedestrian walkway. Inspired by the form and function of a traditional loading dock, the promenade provides access and wayfinding to ground floor industrial tenants. During the day this space provides industrial loading uses and at night it becomes a shared community space for events and gatherings.

 

We created three industrial office buildings for the site. The lower level of each building creates a unifying pedestrian experience across while the upper portions each have their own character. This approach creates a rich collection of buildings that’s driven by the surrounding context while also forming a dynamic urban place.
