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.
