The Meriwether was the first project developed in Portland’s South Waterfront neighborhood known as the River Blocks. The twin structural concrete towers rise 21 and 25 stories giving spectacular city, river and mountain views. The architects – JBD Architects and Busby, Perkins and Will – were inspired by the Vancouver, B.C. “point tower” model. Point towers utilize smaller floor plates rather than the traditional rectangular slabs found in the majority of Portland buildings. This building design decreases shadowing over the pedestrian environment and offers better views through and from the neighborhood.
245 residential units are available. There are 55 premiere and penthouse units on the top floors of the towers; 46 residences in the East Tower; 126 in the West Tower; and 17 ground level townhomes. Unit amenities include defined rooms, graduated ceiling heights, hardwood entry doors, fully equipped gourmet kitchens, spectacular full height windows and master bedrooms with adjoining baths. The building features concierge service, controlled access, inviting lobby, private gardens and secure underground parking.
The building is in close proximity to the Portland Streetcar, providing convenient access to downtown, Pearl District, NW 23rd Avenue and South Waterfront. The South Waterfront’s aerial tram provides a short ride to OHSU.
