18S is an eight story multifamily project developed on an odd-shaped site in the historic Goose Hollow neighborhood. It frames a gateway between the West hill neighborhoods and downtown Portland. The design takes advantage of its triangular site and historic context by blending a modern facade with a historic flatiron corner and contextual brick cladding.
The project faced difficult challenges due to historic Tanner Creek flowing under the project as well as complex site restrictions like light rail station adjacency and Portland General Electric limitations. Additionally, the Goose Hollow Foothills League reviewed the project as part of zoning requirements. This was the first time I was able to lead a presentation to a neighborhood organization:
I also led the documentation of the project from Schematic Design through Construction Documentation. This included managing the team through initial design and several major design changes that came out of Design Advice Requests and Design Reviews with Portland's Design Commission. The design was led by the Principal in Charge with support from the team as necessary.
The project is currently under construction and is highly anticipated as Greystar's first ever ground-up development in Portland.
