Located in the heart of the Pearl District, The Gossamer is a new mixed-use 12-story, 225,000 sf apartment building. As a timeless and dynamic tower, The Gossamer brings 204 units to this vibrant location adjacent to the Portland Streetcar line. The building exterior massing and materials reflect a contemporary interpretation of the pre-war Art Deco and setback skyscraper style. Exterior materials include high-quality brick masonry with fine detailing and metal panels as the accent material. This engaging urban building contributes to the vibrant streetscape with retail at the ground level to further activate the pedestrians passing by. The basement level includes below-grade parking and bike parking. The 12th floor penthouse provides extensive outdoor spaces for residents, including garden terraces and sweeping views of the Willamette River to the east.
This project epitomizes the essence of Portland with its green features, transit adjacency and high walkability. Targeting LEED Silver certification, the development will minimize heat island contribution, use low-VOC materials, and emphasize high-efficiency envelope design.
