Pebble Beach

Orange Splot LLC is in the early design phase on a 5-story, mixed-use, mixed-income building in the heart of the NE 42nd Ave business district. And at the heart of this new building: a Massive Ice Cream Cone!

The project, called Pebble Beach (after Eli’s name for his trademark cinnamon chocolate chip ice cream), is designed in partnership with Brett Schulz and Communitecture.

The building will be a little over 30,000 square feet total, with ground-floor retail along the entire NE 42nd Ave. frontage.  There will be a circular central courtyard, common room, and 39 apartments.  About half will have 2 bedrooms and the rest will be a mix of studios and 1-bedroom units.   Inclusionary Housing, will apply, so at least two of the 2-bedroom units will be permanently affordable to households earning 60% of median family income.

The building will feature a multi-level circular courtyard, looking out (through the cone) to Mt. Hood in the distance.  The building will be 100% electric; we’re working with the Energy Trust of Oregon to get as close as we can to net zero.
