ARCH 484 // 2015 Winter

Individual Studio Project - mixed use development

Critic: Professor Landry Smith

MAC Block 7 is a development project aims to create a multi-use building that fits into the community, providing a cafe and a multi-function hall that will be used by the public, and around 170 residential apartments and 30 hotel rooms. It will also provide parking for both the residents and the members of the Club. This building is part of the new extension of the Multnomah Athletic Club (MAC), it connects to the MAC parking garage and the Club facilities located at the North by overhead bridges and under-ground tunnels. To accommodate the urban growth of Portland, the residential areas are designed with a touch of suburban that fits into the fabric of downtown Portland.
