In Portland’s Goose Hollow neighborhood, the new-build Sawbuck is an eight-story apartment building with 12,000 sf of ground-level retail. Designed as Greystar’s first development in Portland, the building projects a high-quality, long-lasting feel that will fit well in its surroundings for years to come. Through several community alignment meetings, participants lauded the design for bridging the gap between modern and historic.
With a U-shaped design to maximize daylighting, Sawbuck’s curved corner at SW 18th & Salmon streets evokes New York’s famous Flatiron building. Its enduring quality is visible in its brick facade, tilt-turn windows, aluminum storefront glazing, steel canopies and glass guardrails.
Sawbuck offers 182 residences comprised of a mix of studios, one- and two-bedroom units. As one of the first projects approved under the City of Portland’s Inclusionary Housing program, 10 percent of Sawbuck’s units are reserved for households making 60 percent of median family income for a two-person household.
Sustainability abounds in Sawbuck, which is targeting LEED for Homes Mid-rise certification.
