Waterleaf provided architectural services for a new maintenance facility as part of the Portland Streetcar Loop Expansion Project. The 11,000 square foot facility includes maintenance functions, support space, and yard storage for an additional 15 vehicles. To accommodate its unique location underneath an elevated section of I-405, the design pushed the office space up to the street to provide views and windows for the occupants. The project also incorporated energy saving measures including energy-efficient lighting, large windows in the shop for daylighting, energy-efficient equipment, and water-efficient fixtures.
