PORTLAND – The International Mass Timber Conference is the largest gathering of mass timber experts in the world, focusing on the entire industry supply chain. This is the 8th annual event in Portland, Oregon, USA.
The Portland Buildings Tour (PDX Buildings & Manufacturing tour, stop #2), one of the March 26 pre-conference tours, will visit TimberView, an affordable housing project in Portland's Gateway District that provides a glimpse into the future of affordable multi-family.
TimberView is an innovative eight-story, mixed-use, multifamily development. The ground floor will activate the streetscape through what’s planned as a food hall/restaurant incubator space. The project has been awarded tax credits, which will allow all 105 dwelling units to be subsidized, affordable housing. A primary innovative feature of TimberView is its use of mass timber, under construction type IV-C of the Building Code. The primary structural system will utilize glulam columns and beams and cross-laminated timber (CLT) floor/ceiling panels. These mass timber structural elements will be supplemented by steel brace frames.
