Details of The Encore Now Unveiled
Hoyt Street Properties unveiled details of its latest mixed-use condominium project, The Encore, at a series of recent Hoyt Realty Group showroom events. Uniquely defined by its prime location and iconic curve-shaped form, The Encore is a landmark step in the continuing evolution of Portland's Pearl District.
With unmatched proximity to the area's largest planned park, The Encore will create a sweeping gateway into the northern Pearl District neighborhood. The building will be located on NW Overton Street between 9th and 10th Avenue. Primarily residential, the 16-story project will also feature multilevel live/work units and street-level commercial space. Condominium homes will range from contemporary studio suites to luxury townhouses and penthouses. A portal to the historic riverfront, The Encore's curving design will capitalize on abundant views for occupants, framing vistas of the park, Fremont Bridge, Willamette River, and Cascade Mountain peaks beyond.
"The Encore is an exciting and adventurous step for Portland," said Marilyn Andersen, Principal Broker at Hoyt Realty Group. "The design is creative, sustainable, and cutting-edge. It will be the perfect fit for The Pearl and a beautiful addition for our skyline."
Designed by Portland-based BOORA architects, The Encore will feature eco-friendly components and a distinctive urban park aesthetic. The building's clean, contemporary look will complement its environment. Impressions of the adjacent park and river will be incorporated into facets of its interior and exterior design. The Encore will include sustainable features throughout, such as energy-efficient mechanical systems, eco-friendly glazing, and storm water retention to accent a lush garden that will replace what was once a retired gravel street. "The Encore is ideal for those who enjoy an active urban lifestyle as well as the outdoors," Andersen said. "Access to the park means access to green space and playing fields. Town homes and live/work units will have large terraces with special planters designed for personal gardens. Bike commuters will appreciate ample bike storage in the garage." Andersen concluded that, "The Encore will prove an attractive option for homeowners and small businesses that want to immerse themselves in all that the Pearl District has to offer."
Complete details about The Encore are now available at the Hoyt Realty Group showroom, which is located in the Pearl District at 1130 NW 10th Avenue.
The condominium homes are slated for occupancy in Summer 2008. For more information about The Encore, click here.
