The Portland Business Journal released a new awards category to the commercial real estate industry called the Transformer Awards—an event that honors 20 of the most transformative projects in Portland. Two of Bremik’s projects were recognized this year for transforming Portland’s urban core and neighborhoods: Lents Commons and the Towne Storage Historic Renovation.

Lents Commons, an affordable housing project for Prosper Portland and designed by Hacker Architects, was the first of four transformative projects to break ground in the Lents Town Center. When the building opens in January 2018, it will offer 54 mixed-income housing units and ground floor retail for the developing neighborhood. Click here for more information on the project.

A historic renovation to the 1916 Towne Storage building made this one of Portland’s most transformative projects in Portland,  especially for the Central Eastside Industrial District. The 100,000 square foot building was seismically upgraded and renovated, and a sixth floor penthouse and roof deck were added. Autodesk will lease the entire building, bringing another high-tech firm to our city. Click here to learn more about the Towne Storage renovation.
