About this Project

JLD provided cost estimating services to Downtown Development Group for the construction of this new, 123,000-square foot, 133-unit mixed-use apartment complex located in Portland’s Old Town/Chinatown district. The ground floor features 8,640 square-feet of retail space, with 5-stories of mixed income housing units above.

The building was designed with historic style in-mind, blending in with the brick, cast-iron, and stone buildings found in this neighborhood. A dramatic roof top amenity deck provides residents with a stunning view of the city, Mt. Hood, and the Willamette River.

Designed with energy efficiency in mind, the building received LEED Platinum certification. It uses 23% less energy than baseline, featuring a state-of-the-art HVAC system, energy efficiency appliances, and low-flow water fixtures.

The building is the first of 11 proposed new buildings in the Ankeny Blocks, a project which hopes to reshape a 30-block area in Downtown Portland. It received a DeMuro Award from Restore Oregon in 2020, celebrating excellence in preservation, reuse, and community revitalization. The project also received 1st Place in the Multifamily/New Construction category at the DJC Top Projects Awards in 2021.
