Colina for Pacific Housing Northwest Will Provide 139 Affordable Transit-Oriented Units

Major updates coming from our Colina project, located directly next to the Beacon Hill Light rail station. New additions include successfully completing all concrete work on the Colina West, located on Beacon Ave, as well as wrapping up excavation and below grade concrete scopes at Colina East on 17th, as you can see from the slides. Once complete, this 139-unit transit oriented development will look to be a staple in the Beacon Hill neighborhood.

The owner, Pacific Housing Northwest, has made it a focus to incorporate unique transportation options as well as opportunities to encourage community growth. Additionally, artwork by Seattle-based artist, not to mention sustainable practices including solar hot water, bio-swales, solar panels, and green roofs! WALSH looks forward to implementing our high standards of safety and quality as we move forward through framing and exterior details of this 139-unit, transit oriented community on Beacon Hill.

WALSH is Honored to Accept the DJC Hard Hat Safety Award on behalf of all of our people.

Exciting work at the PAE Living Building project!

We are so excited to be a part of the PAE Living Building —on course to be the first, and the largest, privately developed office building to be fully certified under the rigorous Living Building Challenge sustainability program of the International Living Future Institute (ILFI)!

The 58,000 SF office building started construction on April 1 in Portland’s Skidmore/Old Town historic district. When it opens in Fall of 2021, the five-story PAE Living Building, named after its prime tenant, will also be one of very few developer buildings designed to survive a magnitude-7.5 quake with barely a scratch! The project team is pictured standing in the future 71,000-gallon cistern.
