The Gossamer is a new mixed-use 12-story, 204-unit apartment building in the heart of Portland’s Pearl District. Intended as a timeless and dynamic tower, its massing and exterior materials reflect a contemporary interpretation of the pre-war Art Deco and setback skyscraper style. Inside, the moody and dramatic interiors unfold like the faceted core of a geode. Walnut paneling and warm brass add layers of texture and sophistication to a timeless neutral palette. Ground level retail contributes to the vibrant streetscape along city’s streetcar line.
Amenities abound at Gossamer, and include a golf simulation room, sensory deprivation float pod and sauna, fitness room, and both a club room and reservable dining room that open onto the roof terraces. The extensive garden terraces boast sweeping views of the city and Willamette River to the east.
This project epitomizes the essence of Portland with its green features, transit adjacency and high walkability. The LEED Gold certified development also minimizes heat island contribution and features low-VOC materials and a high-efficiency envelope design.
