King Street Lofts
Near the junction of three popular NE Portland neighborhoods. —King, Alberta, and Boise—King Street Lofts offer modern studio and one-bedroom units to young professionals who want to live at a cultural crossroads without sacrificing comfort. At five stories and with 36 units, this mixed-use development assimilates into the existing neighborhood fabric and provides convenient access to public transportation, main thoroughfares, and the Williams bike corridor.
The ground floor retail space features large sliding wooden doors that open the retail space up to street level during warm months, further activating the street and sidewalks. A rich mahogany storefront and mahogany entries create a clean, upscale feel. Metal and concrete panels on the façade add visual texture to the form of the building, and a large overhang divides the retail and residential components. Individual masses are created by framing sets of floor-to-ceiling windows with smooth metal. This project has recently been completed.
