Redfox Commons Creative Office/ Adaptive Reuse

Centrally located in Northwest Portland, the Redfox Commons is an adaptive reuse of two dilapidated warehouse buildings. Alta Urban Projects is a partner in the project and currently managing the redevelopment of two adjacent buildings.  The $20 million project will re-purpose the buildings to be approximately 60,000 SF of creative office space.  The project features extensive sustainability measures, clerestory windows, a high efficiency VRF heating and cooling system and will re-purpose salvaged timbers for the framing of a new jewel-box structure to connect the buildings.  Alta Urban is an owner of the project, managing the design and renovation project scheduled for completion in the first quarter of 2019.

Alta Urban Projects managed the design and construction of this historic building on NW 23rd Avenue in the heart of Portland’s retail district. The run-down building required a change of use, structural/seismic upgrade and all new building systems to become a state of the art office, retail and restaurant space

Alta Urban Projects and its affiliate, Alta Wallowa Properties led the acquisition and redevelopment of the Baggage and Carriage Building in downtown Portland.  Alta Urban assembled the design and construction team as well as private high net worth investors, creating a $10 million redevelopment project that includes over $1 million in federal historic tax credits and a range of public incentives and grants.  The design and construction achieves long term sustainability through repurposing of a 130-year-old building with energy efficient systems and durable, sustainable materials. The upper two floors are filled with creative office space and the 10,000 SF ground floor is Portland’s first food hall that has received international acclaim.  As owner and project manager, Alta Urban/Alta Wallowa managed the pro forma, lending activities, investor relations, tax credits, budget and draws, the design and construction teams, leasing and complex legal activities.
