Concordia University George R. White Library & Learning Center

Project
The LEED Gold-certified library and learning center is adjacent to a single-family residential neighborhood in NE Portland. At nearly 74,000 SF, the three-story library and multi-classroom building is the largest building on campus, holds twice the volume of the old library, and more than doubles the amount of classroom space on campus. Mackenzie’s project team collaborated with the University’s Executive Committee, staff, faculty, students, and neighborhood community groups to develop a program and design for this project that was sensitive to the residential context. Beyond the building,...Learn more

Clay Street Pedestrian Plaza

Project
Designers of the LEED Gold-certified RiverEast Center project worked with the City of Portland to create a model stormwater system that treats not only roof water runoff, but also water from the parking lot, public plaza, and adjoining city streets. As Portland’s first shared green street, Clay Street Pedestrian Plaza treats public stormwater runoff in a privately maintained facility and provides a pedestrian and bicycle connection from the Central Eastside to the Eastbank Esplanade. The facility combines the City of Portland standard flow-through planter and infiltration basin details,...Learn more

Bybee Lake Logistics Center

Project
This 37.7-acre site, built in two phases, houses two buildings—Phase I: 428,750 SF and Phase II: 290,425 SF—totaling 719,175 SF. Both buildings were designed to house multiple tenants dealing with high pile storage and distribution in the Rivergate area of North Portland. The Phase I building has 83 loading dock doors on two sides of the structure, and the Phase II building has 56 loading dock doors. Both buildings are designed with clear heights of 32’. The exteriors of the structures feature tilt wall construction with composite roof systems.Learn more

Wings & Waves Waterpark

Project
This innovative, one-of-a-kind indoor water park is the latest addition to the Evergreen Aviation and Space Museum complex, a regional recreational and educational destination. The 70,000 SF water park features pools, waterslides, a wave pool, and interactive exhibits to teach visitors about relevant science concepts, such as velocity and buoyancy. The facility’s centerpiece is a Boeing 747 airliner mounted above the water park roof that serves as the starting point for the four waterslides. The project demanded an integrated approach spanning architecture, engineering, aquatic facilities...Learn more

Wilsonville Old Town Square

Project
Mackenzie provided architecture, landscape architecture, traffic and structural engineering for this mixed-use project that incorporates workforce housing, small retailers, dining and anchor tenant Fred Meyer Stores. This site, a 17-acre historic orchard, is directly adjacent to the Old Town Historic District and growing urban center. As part of the design process, Mackenzie staff participated in an extensive series of community workshops, Design Review Board presentations, and City Council meetings. The goal of the adjacent community, the City of Wilsonville, and the developer was to create...Learn more

MachineWorks

Project
MachineWorks is a mixed-use, urban infill development in Portland’s Pearl District located on the site of a former light industrial building. The new building includes a two-story, 46,000 SF fitness club at ground level, three levels of elevated parking, and 70,000 SF of office and commercial space spanning four floors. The exterior of the building features industrial materials and scale elements treated carefully to achieve a uniform but compelling aesthetic. Two eco-roofs providing both stormwater filtering and heat island reduction highlight the LEED Gold-certified design. Mackenzie was...Learn more
