Winterbrook obtained land use permits for a new seven-story Vanport Building on PSU’s downtown campus. The building, located on a difficult site bounded by rail tracks on three sides, will contain classrooms, labs, offices, and retail space.

Winterbrook managed a complex Portland land use review process that required design review, modifications, and adjustments. Tasks included testimony before the Portland Design Commission, negotiations with city staff, and coordinating with school officials, architects, and other design team members.
