Colas Construction completed The Almr, a four-story apartment building in the popular NW District of Portland.  The project included two floors of underground parking, 57 units of market-rate apartments with 65,000 SF of building area that activates 150 SF of retail in the shopping area, and a public plaza on NW 21st Avenue. During construction, Colas provided the innovative idea of building its job trailer on top of a pedestrian tunnel to ensure ROW access in addition to protecting the site’s Heritage Elm Tree. After the success of the method, the Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) adopted the model as a city-wide policy.
