The Casey is a mixed-use condominium building located on a quarter-block in Portland’s Pearl District.

We collaborated with neighboring Bullseye Glass and several artists to create a multi-faceted art installation, featuring a textured art glass spire extending from the second floor to above the rooftop. It can be enjoyed from the street as well as by residents at each floor, combining warm colors with a clean, crisp feel.

The Casey was completed in March 2008 and achieved LEED Platinum rating—the first for a high-rise condominium building. Sustainable building features include: photovoltaic panels, high-performance HVAC system, high-efficiency cooling tower, ecoroof, energy-efficient lighting and appliances, and nearby access to smart transportation.

The building’s 16 stories are comprised of four levels of underground parking, large retail space on the ground level and 61 residential units. The top-down construction project consists of a concrete frame structure, post-tensioned slab floors, curtain wall system and a thin, pre-cast concrete panel skin. The average unit at The Casey is 2,400 sq. feet.
