Specht Development, Inc. was hired by Venture Corporation as the Project Manager for the Willamette Marketplace located in West Linn, Oregon. Willamette Marketplace is a 73,620 square foot redevelopment of an aging retail center and was completed in June 2008.

The $20,000,000 project included the demolition of two buildings, remodeling of two buildings and new construction of three buildings. The Willamette Marketplace comprises three one-story retail buildings, a two-story office building, and a three-story building which has retail on the ground floor and medical & professional offices on the second and third floors. There is a separate entrance to the medical and professional offices on the second and third floors as well as a separate parking lot, grand entrance and a well-appointed lobby, complete with an elevator and restroom.

While redevelopment projects such as this one always present unique challenges when compared to greenfield development, this project also had to address serious reservations of the community regarding its scale. Work was done to ensure that the final product did not overshadow the small-town feel of the West Linn area.

Lovejoy Block One
1303 NW Lovejoy Street
Portland, Oregon 97209

Block 1 contains a nine-story, 290,000 square foot mixed-use building with ground floor retail, four levels of parking, and 3 levels of office. The ground floor retail will be mostly occupied by a full-service Safeway grocery store. As one of the first Safeway stores to be located in a dense urban area, the project team had to overcome many unique challenges with such a facility. The building was constructed using an innovative pre-cast system, being built out of over 2,400 pieces of pre-cast concrete. This method was new to this type of building and required a well-coordinated effort between all project team members to successfully implement.

The entire project achieved LEED® Gold Certification and includes the following sustainable building features: 

  • An ecoroof on the top of the tower, reducing storm water runoff and reducing the heat island effect.
  • Recycling of construction materials from demolished structures (including creating benches for pedestrians from the wooden beams removed from the prior structure).
  • Recycling of construction waste materials.
  • Remediation and redevelopment of a brownfield site.
