The Carson, Carson South & Leland James

In Portland, Oregon’s Northwest District, also known as “Slabtown,” Bergelectric is working with the JBA-Andersen Joint Venture, developers Cairn Pacific-Prometheus Joint Venture, and MKE & Associates Engineers on developing a new neighborhood with a series of buildings on a 16-acre property currently referred to as the Slabtown Super Blocks. Once completed, the project will include 385 residential apartment units, nearly 20,000 sf of ground-level retail space, and a 600-space underground parking garage stretching below two city blocks. The massive 16-acre site has been parceled into phases, or “blocks,” that are being constructed simultaneously. Bergelectric is currently contracted to build Blocks 294E, 295E, and 295W.

The Carson
Located at the North end of the Slabtown Super Blocks, Block 294E will be a 14-story mixed-use multifamily building featuring approximately 224 luxury residential units, ground-floor retail shops, and a rooftop “sky garden” with adjacent community lounge. At 14 stories high, Block 294E will be one of the tallest buildings in the neighborhood with views of Northwest Portland, the Willamette River, and nearby Forest Park.

Carson South
Block 295E will include a smaller-scale three-story residential building lining the pedestrian street, and a larger six- story building that forms an L-shape along 21st Avenue. The six-story building will be a mixed-use facility featuring ground-floor commercial spaces with residential units on the floors above. The building is separated into two wings by an alley on the ground floor, an elevator lobby, and a sky bridge on the upper stories. Block 295E will be occupied by the end of the 2018 summer.

Leland James
Recently completed, Block 295W is a five-story (four floors above a basement level) mixed-use facility featuring ground-floor restaurant and retail shops with three stories of office space above.

Each of Bergelectric’s Slabtown Super Blocks projects (Blocks 294E, 295E, and 295W) will be pursuing a LEED® Gold Certification upon completion.
