The Pearl West office building will be located on a half-block site in Northwest Portland. A 230,000 sq. foot, nine-story building, the project will include eight floors of office over ground-level retail. Three floors of below-grade parking are provided to accommodate 150 automobile and 160 bicycle parking spaces.
Pearl West is a speculative office building, designed with flexibility in mind. The project team understands that some tenants may prefer a finished look, while others might want concrete floors and exposed ceilings. It will feature efficient floor layouts, large windows and high ceilings. Building amenities include an executive conference room, restaurant, living room-style lobby, and exterior pedestrian plaza.
Targeting USGBC LEED Silver certification—and located in an area of substantial residential density—sustainable features include bicycle storage and lockers for commuters; on-site stormwater management; sustainable tenant and construction guidelines; low-flow fixtures and irrigation; native and adaptive plantings; occupancy sensors; recycled, salvaged and locally-sourced materials; large window areas and narrow floor plates; and low-VOC paints and coatings.
Pearl West is the first office building to break ground in Portland’s Central City since 2009; the project is targeting completion in December 2015, with occupancy by February 2016.
