The WorldMark by Wyndham is a six-story vacation ownership property near Tom McCall Waterfront Park in downtown Portland. It offers 75 units in a mix of studios, 1-bedroom, and 2-bedrooms, with three tiers of interior finish packages: standard, penthouse and Presidential. Owners enjoy views of the park and river, or of the courtyard terrace. The ground floor features a reception area, fitness room and lounge, as well as housekeeping and laundry areas. An ecoroof and large stormwater planter on the second-floor terrace will treat all stormwater onsite.
SERA helped guide the project through Portland’s complex Land Use Review process with the Historic Landmark’s Commission. The resulting design reflects the the history of Old Town, which consisted of individual shopfronts of varying heights and materials. Varying colors of stucco and horizontal bands break up the facade and reference this history. The Italianate architectural style of the district is also reflected in the building, which features restored cast-iron columns from the City of Portland’s collection.
