It takes a lot of vision to see the potential in a space like this, but it has all the makings of a stunning adaptive reuse.
We’re excited about modernizing these unique spaces, while keeping all of the historic character and charm intact.
Behind the layers of paint and pegboard, there is a ton of historic character that is just waiting to shine.
Our next redevelopment project will involve returning this 1927 firehouse back to its former glory. The property is located in Portland’s Central Eastside Industrial District and is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Watch for progress and photo updates to come!
Ladd Carriage House was identified as worth preserving and is undergoing renovation to be completed in late April. This building represents the melding of old building stock with new, sustainable construction methods.
Ladd Carriage House, built in 1883 and now shrouded in plastic sheeting, will have a new color scheme reflecting authentic Victorian earth tones with a punch of color.
The Ladd Carriage House has been a stable presence on Southwest Broadway Avenue in downtown Portland since 1883. Except for that one time it strayed. In 2007, the historic building was moved a few blocks away during construction of the Ladd Tower. The carriage house – all 534,000 pounds of it – returned last October and is now being restored.
The Oregonian was on hand for a tour of the progress at the Ladd Carriage House. See a new photo of the interior.
