ELLA MARIE

PORTLAND, OR

Project Name: Ella Marie Apartments (12th and Morrison) 

Architect: 

Project Manager: Jeff Fitch

Project Engineer: Doug Wilson 

Project Notes: This 39-unit close-in housing project had a myriad of structural challenges resulting from high seismic forces stemming from the brick façade, meandering through a tricky lateral load path, culminating in a complicated steel framed “transfer slab” over parking.  Plenty of custom detailing was required for the roof decks, special masonry shearwalls, and helical piers supporting 4 stories of structure over city-mandated below-grade stormwater cisterns.

Status: Completed 2018
