Portland Landscape design

Tupelo Alley, Portland Oregon

Tupelo Alley is a four-building mixed-use development that recalls the warehouse, commercial and semi-industrial past of N. Mississippi Avenue. The 188-unit project is scaled to fit into the surrounding neighborhood, while providing a model for high density “smart growth” and transit-oriented development in North Portland. Shapiro Didway designed the landscape for Tupelo Alley, for Sera Architects and Trammell Crow Residential, our work included a new seating plaza along the south edge of the five-story building on N. Mississippi Avenue. This new plaza, adjacent to the retail/commercial space on the ground level, provides opportunities for businesses, cafes and shops to enhance the street life. The new plaza also relates to an existing pedestrian plaza directly across N. Mississippi. The overall landscape design activates the core of the Mississippi District and provides a multiplicity of pedestrian opportunities to stop, shop, visit and rest.  This was a LEED Silver project.
