Increased building activity in Oregon benefiting local architecture firms

Daily Journal of Commerce

November 3rd 2004

Architecture firms around the state are benefiting from increased building activity in Oregon, which some economic experts say could be an indicator of increased confidence in the state's economy.

Milwaukie officials have decided to hire Myhre Group Architects to design a mixed-use redevelopment project in that city.

The redevelopment project is part of a new downtown comprehensive plan city officials created to help revitalize the downtown core of Milwaukie.

Myhre Group, a Portland firm, will be responsible for the architectural design, master planning, interior design and planning entitlements for the first step in that comprehensive master plan: a six-building, market-rate spread featuring commercial and retail space, apartments, a rowhouse and condominiums.

The project will be split into two phases. A mixed-use building, housing the commercial and retail spaces, apartments and condominiums will be built first on Main Street. The second phase will consist of row houses, to be built along a new 21st Street extension.
