Mirabella Portland is reeling in awards for sustainable design.
Mirabella Portland, a retirement community building in the South Waterfront development, landed two awards of merit from Builder magazine for being a sustainable senior housing community.
The 30-story building, designed by Ankrom Moisan Associated Architects and built by Hoffman Construction Company, is also a finalist for the Urban Land Institute Global Awards for Excellence, to be announced in October, and for the Hospitality Design Awards for Creative Achievement from Hospitality Design magazine.
Pacific Retirement Services Inc. manages the Mirabella, a cutting edge retirement community which sits on Southwest Bond Avenue.
"We’re pleased to have South Waterfront as the backdrop for this stunning design—and for our community and residents," said Brian McLemore, president and CEO of Pacific Retirement Services, in a press release "The goals of this neighborhood are the same as ours: to provide a green, vital, and sociable environment that offers multiple opportunities to attain cultural enrichment and explore Portland and beyond.”
The Mirabella Portland is aiming for LEED Platinum certification and the South Waterfront neighborhood is going after LEED Neighborhood Development certification.
