About this Project
FST completed the civil and site design for a mixed-use project for the Federated Companies in Portland. The project was originally designed to have four 13-story towers for 800 residential units, 100,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space and two parking garages for 1,200 vehicles. Following public debate, the project has been scaled down to four six-story towers and one parking garage.
The complex, branded as "midtown," is a 715,000 square foot mixed-use project located on the Portland peninsula. The revised project is comprised of 445 apartments, 91,542 square feet of direct access retail space, parking for 801 cars and 176 bicycles, and a public art program featuring in interactive sculpture park and mural installations from internationally known street artists.
