Willamette Week’s Finder Guide Highlights Two GreenWorks Projects

Willamette Week’s Finder, an annual guide to Portland’s neighborhood hot spots features two GreenWorks projects in its recent 2011 issue.

The Finder names Da Vinci Middle School as one of Laurelhurst/28th Avenue’s “Best Kept Secrets.”  GreenWorks designed the site work for this modular 21st century classroom that is certified LEED Platinum.

The Finder also features the GreenWorks’ Kenton Streetscape project with a neighborhood mention by Mayor Sam Adams. While noting the huge Paul Bunyan statue as an icon in the area, Mayor Adams describes Kenton Streetscape as “the real babe of the neighborhood.”  He mentions the neighborhood’s redevelopment as a “fully retrofitted green main street, with wider sidewalks, concrete-and granite benches, and a granite sculpture by Mauricio Saldana.”
