Burnside Bridgehead Block 75 - Phase 2 | 206'-6" | 19 floors | Pining for the Fjords















-------------------------

Original Post:

This should be interesting to follow, moving it into its own thread...

Will Portland's next skyline addition be a 20-story wooden tower?

Fresh off the news that Beam Development is planning to restore the Shleifer Furniture building into a hotel after the long-standing furniture business closes its doors, the developer has also set its sights on a wooden high-rise at the Burnside Bridgehead.

Brad Malsin, owner of Beam Development, said his firm is considering a cross-laminated timber (CLT) building for Phase 2 of Block 75 at the Burnside Bridgehead.

"We'd love to shoot for close to 20 stories," he said. "We're debating some kind of mixed-use and we'll try to do some new angle on creative office."

Beam is well into its Phase 1 of Block 75 at the Burnside Bridgehead, a 10-story mixed-use project that it's developing with Urban Development + Partners. That project, which is set to top out in the next few weeks, will offer 7,800 square feet of ground-floor retail space, 32,000 square feet of office space and six floors of apartments. It's expected to be completed by next summer.

Malsin said more concrete details of plans for Phase 2 of Block 75 will materialize in the coming months.

Sounds like a potential good addition to this district. I am guessing they are talking about the vacant quarter block on this block?

I posted this in the Pearl thread, but thought I would post it here as well. A great TED Talk video to watch to gain a cursory understanding of the differences between a cross-laminated timber project and traditional wood construction:

Yes. The building currently under construction assumed a future building on the rest of the block. The garage access for both phases will be under phase II, and the phase I approval has a condition that within a certain number of years either a) phase II must be under construction, or b) they have build a roof structure to screen the ramp.

Neither of them returned the favor though.

They've more than redeemed themselves with this new CLT tower design though. Wow! One of the best looking hi/mid rise designs I've seen, especially for Portland. I'm unimpressed by their new hotel proposal on Burnside though.

I really hope we see more of these CLT buildings going up in Portland and throughout the metro. It would be cool to have a little urban district off one of the MAX stops that was basically a CLT district, it would create an interesting skyline.

Why are they calling the CLT, "111 NE MLK"? None of the proposed building occurs on MLK....

The building I was talking about. Hopefully this tower can sort of mask the behemoth ugly building they call The Yard that will be next to this..

Ps with the addition of this tower and the 2nd phase of the Hassalo project, my goodness this area is getting pretty dense

Drawings [PDF - 11 MB]. Of note:

Quote:
Currently the project is investigating the use of heavy timber for the structural frame. If heavy timber is selected, this project will be in alignment to becoming the tallest wood commercial structure in the world. In the event the heavy timber is not deemed a good fit, post tensioned concrete will be substituted as the structural frame.
