This mixed-use building features loft style living in the Mt. Tabor neighborhood of Portland, Oregon. The use of stone veneers and exposed wood decks provide a northwest feel. This three-story, 14,745-square-foot structure has retail space at the lower level with townhouses in the upper levels and an on-site covered parking structure.
While providing structural calculations, drawings, and construction services, the layout and shape of this property presented numerous design challenges for our team.
The project consisted of two separate structures connected with a common walkway. The lower level of Building 1 was open to retail space, while the lower level of Building 2 consisted of a parking garage (2,379 square feet). The upper floors of the buildings were made up of six townhouses.
The typical structural frame was constructed of wood framing with the exception of the parking garage and the balconies. The parking garage ceiling was framed using a composite concrete floor and structural steel beams, while the exterior walls of the parking garage were a combination of cast-in-place concrete and masonry.
