North Rim Development Group adds the growing planning/design firm to their newest project in the Central Eastside Industrial District

NRDG welcomes an exciting new tenant, SOLARC Architecture, Inc., to a customized, ground-floor suite in the newly-redeveloped Waterman Building, at 80 SE Madison Street (TheWatermanBuilding.com). The space features a private conference room with floor-to-ceiling glass and a server room that repurposes the vintage stairwell doors from the original building.

SOLARC Architecture (SolarcArchitecture.com) is a newly-separated division of the 15-year-old SOLARC Engineering and Energy + Architectural Consulting firm, and is headed by principal Galen Ohmart, AIA LEED AP. SOLARC specializes in fast tracking new buildings, renovations, and tenant improvements for public agencies and private property owners in Oregon and Washington.

The Waterman Building is one of NRDG’s latest developments in the popular Eastside Industrial District of close-in southeast Portland. Construction of the project was conducted sustainably to LEED standards, and the property houses four floors of creative office space plus an on-site restaurant in the lobby. The Waterman includes unique tenant amenities such as an on-site private-membership secure parking garage and unmatched cyclist-friendly amenities such as bike lockers and storage, plus a commuter shower facility. The Waterman Building has a modern aesthetic, inside and out, which adds to Portland’s vibrant riverfront atmosphere.

North Rim Development Group is a prominent, local real estate developer with more than 2 decades of service, growth, and experience. They have overseen 20+ projects and the company implements sustainability as a core virtue without compromising quality. North Rim was featured in Portland Business Journal’s “Metro Region’s 10 Largest Commercial Real Estate Developers” in 2016.
