Akana provided civil, structural, and MEP engineering, as well as landscape architecture for the full redevelopment of a 0.96 acre (41,880 sf) site in Northwest Portland’s Portsmouth Neighborhood. The site is currently developed with eight (8), two-story, multi-family buildings, three (3) surface parking areas, interior pedestrian circulation, and a community garden. A full redevelopment of the site will consist of one new, 3-story building (~63,000 sf), fronting Hereford Avenue with “U-shaped” massing and a shared/community courtyard with a play structure, and provided surface parking, while including various botanical species in the vicinity.
