Burnside Bridgehead Apartments Top Out On Way To Completion
Dated: January 22 2016
The YARD apartment building under construction at the east end of the Burnside Bridge has gotten as high as its going to get — 21 stories.
To mark the construction milestone, developers, dignitaries and others from the business community gathered atop the building for a topping out ceremony yesterday. Among the attendees were U.S. Rep. Earl Blumenauer and Jeff Pickhardt, president of Key Development, the Hood River developer who has partnered with Guardian Real Estate Services on the project.
“Today, we mark YARD reaching full height and we enter the final phase of construction leading up to our opening this summer,” Pickhardt said in a release.
Designed by Portland's Skylab Architecture, YARD will be a 284-unit residential and commercial building at the Burnside Bridgehead, one of the rapidly transforming areas of the inner city. Twenty of the building's units will be reserved for affordable "workforce housing" for Portlanders making up to 60 percent of the median income.
Earlier this month, Key Development announced that Portland restaurant Tilt had signed on for 4,000 square feet of space at YARD. When the building opens this summer, there will also likely be additional restaurants, a spa, public art, a coffee shop and a bike-through retail space called SideYARD.
