Standing atop a former brownfield site, over 300 rammed aggregate piers support the collection of four architecturally striking buildings. The Sunshine Apartments stands as a role model to multifamily housing throughout Portland and beyond.
The 90 total units boast a range of sizes which create a rich interaction of residents. Careful layout of 1‑bedroom units as well as more generously sized 2 & 3‑bedroom apartments are geared toward family living.
The strategically oriented development of both buildings and landscape promote community living through extensive exterior amenity spaces while keeping a strict focus on energy conservation. All for the passive cooling of every unit. All stormwater is treated on site and the project anticipates Salmon Safe certification in 2019.
