We are excited to announce that Sideyard has won a 2020 A|N Best of Design Award in the Workplace Commercial category.
A leftover 9,000 sq ft berm space was created when the City of Portland built the one-way Couch Street couplet reconnecting the roadway to the Burnside Bridge. Sideyard is a building designed for the working-class aimed at connecting to public transportation with exclusive pedestrian and bicycle access. It is positioned within the new Central Eastside community envisioned by the Burnside Bridgehead Framework plan. The wedge-shaped building features a new CLT structural system with an open ground level commuter oriented retail environments geared toward guests and tenants. The workspace above is wrapped in brick masonry with the building acting as an anchor for the Burnside Bridge and a gateway to the Portland eastside community.
