Saturday was a perfect day for our Superhero-themed Walsh Family Picnic! The Seattle weather was great, and the food was delicious, we had a great time visiting with co-workers, families and our special guests Wonder Woman and Spiderman. A big thank you to all who made this event a success and exciting! Special thanks to Cristina Rivera and Rachel Bang for the planning and execution of a flawless picnic. To the kids and the young at heart who came in their superhero outfits/costumes, thank you for adding to the superhero aura, and with Spiderman and Wonder Woman characters around, it was magical!
Insightful conversation on OPB’s Think Out Loud with our Chief Estimator, Ed Sloop, about the economics of multi-family and affordable housing in Portland.
Excellent closing statement by Ed on why WALSH is committed to, and passionate about, building high-quality, durable, high-value affordable multi-family housing throughout the Northwest.

Walsh Construction Co. and O’Neill Construction Group (OWCB) are jointly building the Grand Avenue Apartments in the Lloyd District. This will be Portland’s largest single-building affordable housing project since the 286-unit Hollywood East was built in 1969. When complete in 2020 it will offer 240 units (88 studios, 109 one-bedroom units and 43 two-bedroom units) of affordable housing.
Special thanks to:

It is a beautiful space at the Redd on Salmon Street as work continues on the Redd East! The Redd is the vision of Ecotrust and is comprised of a two-block, 80,000-square-foot mission-driven food production and distribution campus including two buildings: Redd West, a former distribution hub and sales center; and the Redd East, a 1918 ironworks. With more than 20,000 square feet of warehouse space, Redd West serves as a cold storage, aggregation, packaging, and distribution center, and also includes three commercial production kitchens. Restoration of Redd East is currently underway and includes a community kitchen, world-class event center and office space.
