The Westmoreland Apartments is a brand new three-story wood-frame building in Southeast Portland. Due to its residential location, the owners of the property wanted a structure that would blend into the surrounding neighborhood. By working closely with the owner and architect, I&E Construction guided the decision to use cedar shake siding, to give the building a more natural Northwest feel. For this project, the design also was focused on making the most of the 5,004 square foot lot. A mix of studio, one, and two bedrooms were used, giving an overall living space of 8,517 square feet. Westmoreland Apartments also features enclosed bicycle storage, living up to the green living standards in this Portland neighborhood.
