The Avenue Lofts
This Pearl District condominimum project is a conversion of the historic Meier and Frank (now Macy's) department store warehouse building into residential condominiums. It features several levels of parking, with one and two story lofts above. A four-story lightwell was hollowed out of the interior of the massive building to create a central garden courtyard on the third floor. The central courtyard includes groves of bamboo and several varieties of moss.

The exterior of the project features walk-up condominium units that front onto a pedestrian plaza on the Irving Street right of way. The plaza maintains the existing cobblestone and is designed to elicit a sense of the former industrial use of the area.

Location: Portland, Oregon

Architect: SERA
