The Metropolitan, a 380,000sf 136-unit luxury condominium, is composed of a 19-story residential tower, 4-story, live/work office building, ground-floor retail and two floors of underground parking. We wanted the tall tower to stand akin to the historic Portland tradition of building on 100-foot-square, quarter-block sites. And by locating the tower in the southeast corner of the block, we reduced shading on a park to the north while maintaining views for interior units and neighboring buildings.
Arrayed in travertine and a high performance curtain wall, The Metropolitan balances amenities with functional and efficient sustainable design systems and strategies. Highly efficient mechanical systems, a rainwater retention and reuse system, and the incorporation of durable, low-maintenance materials helped us achieve LEED Silver Certification on this high-class address.
Our design allows most tower condos to be corner units, maximizing views and daylight for owners. A common area with lounge, a wine bar, an exercise room, conference facilities, a guest suite, and a second floor roof garden brings together residents and their guests, and make The Metropolitan an urban residence that takes full advantage of its Portland context.
