This presentation introduces a specific site transition from 1890s industrial to 2020s mixed- use in Hood River, Oregon. Two case studies are presented on weathering the COVID storm in wood buildings.
Key objectives:

  • Mixing uses within wood buildings
  • Mixing uses within a busy waterfront district: recreational, industrial, and retail/commercial
  • Adapting spaces through the global pandemic
  • Adapting spaces as the nature of “work” evolves
  • Working with public agencies and business stakeholders to meet economic development goals
