From the DJC Oregon, by Stephanie Basalyga: “Take four floors of space for the offices of a Portland architecture firm. Add 17 floors of apartments. Then top it all off with four rooftop wind turbines. The end result is a 23-story tower in downtown Portland that walked away with the “best in show” title at the Daily Journal of Commerce’s 2010 TopProjects event.
Held Thursday at the Oregon Convention Center, this year’s TopProjects event paid tribute to nearly 100 projects completed last year in Oregon and Southwest Washington.
Twelve West, submitted by project designer ZGF Architects, took the top award as well as first place in the category of private buildings valued at more than $100 million. Members of the project team recognized included project developers Gerding Edlen Development and Downtown Development Inc., project engineer Glumac and general contractor Hoffman Construction”.
I’m not sure what else I could add to this except, “Wow”— and that we knew you were worthy all along Indigo. You have made us proud. Fun to live in, to work in, to look at from many vantage points— and now, pedigreed. Just thought you should know that where you reside, where your head hits the pillow every night, is an award winning place. Not just your home, but a place others get inspiration. Perhaps we are a beacon unto the future.
We at Indigo like to do things a little bit differently. We see regular apartments, and we like to make them better. We see a service, and we like to do it more often. It might take a bit more work, but the end product always turns out amazing!
Today, let’s apply that theory to the humble art of applesauce. Growing up, my mom made applesauce, and I remember those days as long, hot, ardous, and sweaty. I don’t have any time for such a long process! But here’s a secret–that was canning applesauce. What if you just wanted a little jar to eat up this week, or put on your pancakes?
The solution is easy, quick, and much tastier than Mr. Applesauce Brand you can buy down the street. Try this:
Take 3-4 apples like Gala, Fuji, or Honeycrisp (for you local fans). Stick them in a microwave for 10 minutes with some butter, honey, cinnamon, and apple cider or juice. Take out of microwave, mash, and enjoy on toast, potato pancakes, or plain! Try it once, and you’ll never buy applesauce again…
