ZGF, in association with Ankrom Moisan, designed The NV, a 26-story, 376,634 SF, full-block mixed-use residential tower sitting above a two story podium with two levels of below grade parking in Portland’s Pearl District. The project includes 284 for rent units featuring full views of downtown and the Willamette River anchored by ground-floor retail and adjoined by two landscaped public plazas. Designed to appeal to a variety of lifestyles, The NV consists of six different unit types including townhouses and lofts. To blend with the neighborhood, the building is grounded by the richly hued clinker brick podium with a landscaped roof containing amenities such as an outdoor kitchen, fire pit, children’s play area, and yoga studio. The 252-foot tower rising above the podium is rotated off the city grid to optimize views and enhance privacy for tenants. Clad in textured and colored stainless steel shingles, it captures and reflects the changing light. The NV is LEED Gold®.
