Thank you to the WALSH team for hosting another successful dinner at Bud Clark Commons for Transition Projects, Inc. WALSH has hosted quarterly dinners at TPI since 2009 and we’ve learned a lot over the years! The home-made “Breakfast for Dinner” idea was such a hit that we even received a lovely thank you from a TPI participant through our website. “Thank you all for a fantastic dinner. Feb 1. 2017. “Breakfast for Dinner” at Transition Projects was delicious. Your crew did a wonderful job. The omelet was world class. THANKS AGAIN !!!” Thanks to TPI for the work they do for our greater community and the participants for a fun evening.
Excellent work progressing on the Grant Park Village Phase 2 project in NE Portland with LRS Architects for Capstone Partners! Phase 2 will be a U-shaped building and five stories tall. An underground parking garage will serve the 167 apartment units of Phase 2, which is set to be completed in the first Quarter of 2018. The village features an outdoor community with a gas fire pit and lounge, a bike repair shop and a pet spa with a grooming station. It sits at an intersection that handles 30,000 cars per day and houses New Seasons Market on-site, providing residents with access to fresh, local produce.
Congratulations to Compass Housing Alliance, Ronald United Methodist Church, Hope Link and SMR Architects on the near-completion of Ronald Commons, a new affordable housing development and service center that will offer housing for homeless and low-income residents, as well as support programs that include a food bank, family services and financial education and assistance for its residents and the Shoreline community.
It has been an honor working with this exceptional team on this significant, community-building project. We are excited to celebrate at the Open House!
The 12-story Framework, whose construction in Portland, Oregon gets started in February, will be made primarily with CLT. To meet seismic objectives, the building will include a lateral-force resisting system with post-tensioned rocking wood shear walls, pioneered in New Zealand.

Bridge Meadows Beaverton, which will replicate the success of Bridge Meadows North Portland, addresses the chronic issue of foster children in Washington County by creating permanent families and homes for foster children exiting the child welfare system, and surrounding the new families with supportive “honorary” grandparents, all living inter-dependently within an intentional intergenerational community.
