O’Bryant Square has languished for nearly four years, as the city of Portland has struggled to devise a workable, funded plan to redevelop the half-block plaza in downtown.

O’Bryant Square, in downtown Portland, remains closed. But a potential $5 million federal grant could help spur redevelopment.

Thank you to the Daily Journal of Commerce for covering our Aloha Affordable Housing project! The development is providing 82 homes that fill an urgent need in the area. SEA’s design includes dynamic massing and a simple material palette to create a timeless building. The development is a mix of studio, 1, 2-, and 3-bedroom apartments. The complex’s amenities include a community gathering space with a communal kitchen and a private courtyard for residents to enjoy. The building is targeting Earth Advantage Gold. 🏡
We are excited to see our Water Tower project covered in the Daily Journal of Commerce! Water Tower is an iconic building in Portland’s John’s Landing neighborhood. It was built in 1903 as a furniture warehouse for the Portland/Biltwell Furniture Company and since that time has evolved to be a mixed-use office and retail complex. Scott Edwards Architecture’s renovation design focuses on preserving elements of the building’s past, like heavy timber beams and its namesake water tower, while updating the space for modern tenancy needs. Bright, open interior spaces and engaging, multi-purpose exterior areas create a welcoming environment for visitors and tenants alike.
