Village at Lovejoy Fountain – Portland, Oregon

Village at Lovejoy Fountain

GreenWorks developed design review presentation drawings and construction documents for this 200 unit housing project located in the heart of Portland’s South Auditorium District, overlooking Lovejoy Fountain. Key design issues included preservation of nine large existing elms in the adjacent plaza, blending the new building in with the Second and Third Avenue Pedestrian Malls, and the need for a large portion of project landscaping to be contained in raised planters over structured parking. We were responsible for design of hardscapes (including planters, pavings, and trellises), planting and irrigation. We also designed a large cascading fountain at the entry. GreenWorks received the National Concrete Masonry Association / ASLA National Award of Excellence, 1999 for their accomplishments at Village at Lovejoy Fountain.
