Clackamette Park Master Plan

Clackamette Park, one of Oregon City’s largest parks, is located at the confluence of the Willamette and Clackamas Rivers. These two iconic rivers provide both the park’s allure and serious challenges to its year-round use. Mackenzie’s master plan addresses the park’s resiliency while improving pedestrian and bike connectivity. Much of the park becomes unusable in the wet period of the year because of river swells and storms. The park includes an RV park which is closed every winter, resulting in a loss of revenue to the city. The design team gathered input from park maintenance staff, who...Learn more

Woodmont Natural Park

Woodmont Natural Park is designed to enhance and restore its existing ecosystems and strengthen the community’s connection to the natural environment. During the master plan process, Mackenzie led an extensive public outreach program that included online surveys, design workshops, and presentations. These efforts centered on listening to the community and gathering feedback to inform the park features. Mackenzie also engaged closely with advisory committees and city commissioners to gain approvals. A variety of distinct areas were identified in the planning process: flexible open space, oak...Learn more

Bainbridge Island Fire Station 21

The new Bainbridge Island Fire Station 21, the island’s headquarters station, is designed to be an integral part of the community’s civic identity for decades to come. The station replaces an aging facility built in 1978, when the island’s population was less than a tenth of its current population of over 24,000. It’s the result of an in-depth needs assessment process that evaluated and articulated deficiencies in the old station’s building systems, structural integrity, ADA accessibility, and functional capacity. As a centrally located and publicly funded facility, the station’s importance...Learn more

Safeway Claremont and College

This new urban neighborhood Safeway replaces an outdated and undersized 1960s-era store and surface parking lot on College Avenue, down the street from the University of California, Berkeley. The ground-up new construction project includes a modern Safeway with rooftop parking, an outdoor pedestrian plaza, and a new multitenant retail center opposite the plaza. The plaza—designed collaboratively with community input—provides a lively public space and insular seating areas, and activates the neighborhood and retail frontages. Community-inspired features include a subtle stage for street...Learn more

Sandy Fire District Main Station

The major renovation of Sandy Fire District Main Station entailed a seismic retrofit, doubled capacity for staff, and a reimagined aesthetic in line with new City guidelines. A combination station with career and volunteer firefighters, Sandy Fire serves a region stretching from the outskirts of the Portland metro area to the base of Mt. Hood. The renovated facility now fully supports a growing community, provides a healthier work environment for its staff, and sets an aspirational standard of design for the City. A headquarters station, Sandy Fire houses district offices, administrative...Learn more

Albany Police Facility

The City of Albany, Oregon needed to replace their aging police station. Their decades-old facility was designed for 50 people and the department had grown to more than double that size since its construction. Mackenzie led the city through a needs assessment process and a successful bond campaign that secured the funding for a state-of-the-art 41,000 SF station designed to remain operational in the aftermath of an earthquake. The new facility will efficiently support a growing community with strategically planned areas for future expansion, provide a healthy work environment for officers and...Learn more

Portland International Airport Rental Car Quick-Turnaround Facility

Rental Car Quick Turn-Around (QTA) facilities are an innovative building type, with only about a dozen in the country. A successful QTA facility efficiently and safely fuels and cleans rental cars to meet the current demands of airport customers, while being able to accommodate future growth. They are logistically complicated projects that require an in-depth understanding of traffic flow, operational function, airport safety protocol, and fueling. The 316,000 SF facility can clean and fuel up to 430 cars per hour, with 76 fueling positions and 16 car wash bays. The project is targeting an...Learn more

Regional Industrial Site Readiness Project

Mackenzie is working for a regional consortium of public and private funders—including Metro, the State of Oregon’s Business Oregon, Port of Portland, Portland Business Alliance, and the Oregon Chapter of NAIOP, the national commercial and industrial development association—to inventory and identify infrastructure and policy strategies for industrial land in the Portland metropolitan area. Performed in two phases, the project produced a GIS-based industrial site inventory based on development readiness. Phase II work included identifying the 12 most strategically-important industrial sites...Learn more
