Leveraging the past: Transformation of the former Freeman Factory

Thursday, April 11, 2019

6:00pm–8:00pm

Join the team behind Redfox Commons for a design presentation, discussion, and building tour of this soon to be complete adaptive reuse project in Northwest Portland. The site has a notable past as a gateway to the 1905 Lewis and Clark Centennial Exposition and was later part of a significant industrial sanctuary. The project transforms the former Freeman Factory buildings into an open and flexible development geared towards creative tenants. The team will discuss the design and construction process which took the historic buildings down to their original heavy timber framing, rebuilding them to create one cohesive campus. More than 400’ in length and with interior column-free spans of 100’, this project creates an architectural experience that is unique within urban Portland. The two historic buildings are joined with a wood and glass entry pavilion made from timber salvaged directly from the historic buildings. The project’s story is a catalyst for thinking about how development can leverage underutilized structures and materials to add value to our cities. The presentation will include perspectives from the developer, architect, contractor, and others, will conclude with a tour of the 60,000 sf complex.
