17th & Front - Portland, Or.

DESCRIPTION

17th & Front is a large mixed-use development on an incredibly challenging site. The narrow, wedge shaped property is located between railroad tracks to the Southwest and NW Front Avenue to the Northeast, it is at the edge of the Northwest District with a direct path into the Northwest Industrial area, and has views of the river, Fremont Bridge, and Mount Hood. The project was broken into three buildings sitting atop a large podium in order to maximize daylight and minimize the imposing area of the site. The podium provides a collection of micro-industrial and retail/commercial space to create and sustain a critical density needed for vibrancy, before the rest of the neighborhood fills in with expected development.

The design of the project takes cues from the old industrial buildings that currently occupy the area, particularly from the diagonally-braced, wood-framed warehouses clad in metal panels. Showing off a slightly different face from each approach, it reflects the diversity of the area and its unique location in between several very different neighborhoods.

PARK AVENUE WEST TOWER - PORTLAND, OR.

DESCRIPTION

Located in the heart of downtown Portland, Park Avenue West sits amongst the city’s most highly-revered historical and cultural attractions. Iconic early-Portland architecture mingles with the energy of a modern, urban ethos. It’s a core of undiscovered harmony, where Broadway’s hub of art and culture meets urban planning and neighborhood charm to offer escape, excitement and endless opportunity.

Park Avenue West Tower was initially scheduled to be completed in 2010 and was developed by TMT Development. The tower was to have a total of 33 floors and offer retail space, office space, and 85 housing units. The housing component was dropped from the plans. It was also to have a six floor underground garage with 325 parking spaces. The building gained the top four floors when developers agreed to add 1,650 square feet of bike facilities (including public bicycle commuter showers, bike parking, and locker space) under the connected Director Park's subsurface parking, gaining the tower a 40-to-1 bonus.

SEATTLE PUBLIC UTILITIES TRANSFER STATION - SEATTLE, WA.

 

DESCRIPTION

The North Transfer station is located in the Wallingford neighborhood. The facility is designed to handle waste more efficiently, safely and provides more opportunities to recycle. Designed with the community in mind the North Transfer Station has updated safety features such as separating small residential drops from the bigger customers. It also has a green roof, solar panels, and a rain garden setting it apart from most city dumps.  It also features a sound barrier that projects the sounds from the facility back towards the site and a basketball court.

The North Transfer Station is a state of the art facility designed to improve customer safety, increase capacity and efficiency, and reduce odor and noise. SPU worked with the community through a collaborative design process to create a facility that includes community amenities and sustainable features, such as public open spaces, basketball court, facility sound barrier, green stormwater infrastructure, solar panels, and a steel truss roof design that proved to be critical to achieving the sunlight requirement for a LEED gold status. In addition, the new Reuse & Recycle building will reduce the amount of waste headed to the landfill.
