Slate, is a mixed-used building in Portland, Oregon. Designed by a local architectural firm Works Progress Architecture (W.PA). The architects had to work with a site curved at the southeast corner, and to not have to awkwardly curve the facade itself, the team designed the shape with the projecting boxes. This, not coincidently also resembles a honeycomb to suggest the activities played out within each space.
This 10 story and 147,000sf building is transit-oriented, earned LEED Gold Certification in December 2016, has 75 residential apartment units on the upper six floors, 31,140sf of creative offices on floors 2, 3 and 4, and 8,335sf of retail space at street level.
