Atwater Place is a mixed-used retail and 23-story condominium tower located on the river in the South Waterfront District, a dense, urban neighborhood on a former industrial brown field site. The district is particularly noted for its walkability and access to transit and trails. The street frontage of Atwater Place offers retail opportunities for the community, while a river walk with seating and cascading gardens parallels the city’s greenway. SW Pennoyer Street is a special pedestrian-oriented lane that leads to the waterfront.
Quality outdoor space is especially important to residents who choose this urban lifestyle. Site amenities designed by Mayer/Reed include a spacious courtyard outside the community room where residents gather in a geometric garden with a reflecting pool and bocce ball court. A recirculating waterfall spilling from the courtyard connects to the pedestrian street. Lush stormwater treatment gardens terraced with stone weirs further activate the pedestrian street. From the upper level living units, residents enjoy the vistas of downtown, Willamette River and Mt. Hood while overlooking an extensive eco-roof planted with a variety of native and native-adapted drought-tolerant plantings.
