Commercial, Mass Timber

Clay Creative

Warehouse renovation project supported by heavy timber

Clay Creative is a major renovation project in the heart of Portland’s Central Eastside Industrial District. The warehouse that formerly occupied the site was almost entirely destroyed by fire in 2006 is now supported by a heavy timber structural system.

A 2,000 SF rooftop deck faces west, toward the downtown skyline, providing occupants with a communal amenity space. The 6-story, 90,000 SF building is the tallest commercial office building in the neighborhood.
