Pine Street Market

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 equity from 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.

Function & Foundation

Function PDX is an event space and bar in the ground floor of a mixed-use historic building in Portland’s Historic Alphabet District. Foundation is a boutique clothing store on the second floor of the building dedicated to supporting local charities with the profits from the boutique.

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


Hilton Hotel

Mr Davies managed the design and construction of this major remodel of Hilton’s downtown restaurant, bar and market. Understanding the client’s goals of increasing traffic and revenue, David led the design team to focus on repositioning the bar and layout of the dining room and market to work more efficiently. The project was delivered on time and under budget with a single design-build contract.
