Cyan/PDX

Designed to attract urban-dwellers seeking an active, environmentally-conscious lifestyle, Cyan/PDX expresses sustainable functions through elegant details. The building’s landscapes are entirely on-structure, including its courtyard which offers amenities such as an edible garden, and serves as the building’s backyard, and a central activity space for residents. Contributing to the LEED Gold certification, 100% of onsite water is filtered and reused for irrigation. The project is a cornerstone of ongoing infill and sustainable redevelopment in a changing area of south downtown Portland.
