Building Blocks: Hampton Street Apartments
A new mixed-use apartment complex in the Tigard Triangle designed by Leeb Architects, supports the cities urban renewal strategies by providing housing options.
Building Blocks: South Ridge Apartments
Leeb Architects has been working diligently on several projects at various stages. We were fortunate enough to have the Daily Journal of Commerce, Oregon takes notice of our coming projects. In this instance, our South Ridge Apartments in Clark County found themselves in the spotlight. As a "Building Block" we aimed at not only providing housing for a growing community but also creating work during the start of the COVID era. You can find out more on the DJC website with the link provided below. We look forward to providing further insight into the next few projects coming down the line for you all.
A Dense Development for Northwest Portland
Options for gracious living in Northwest Portland will expand with this new multifamily housing off NW Nicolai.
New Apartments in Northwest Portland
This project in Northwest Portland adds 219 new apartments to the popular neighborhood, with more corner units than usual. The Portland Business Journal introduces the story.

West Coast Home Solutions turned to Leeb Architects for their first multifamily project, expanding from their single-family and townhouse roots to meet the growing demand for multifamily rental properties.
YMCA Beaverton Groundbreaking
The YMCA of Columbia-Willamette Valley celebrated the groundbreaking for the new YMCA Beaverton Youth Development Center.
From Hotel to Hot Property
Leeb Architects has taken an older hotel and converted it into a new apartment community, a welcome conversion for this Portland site in the Lloyd District.
On the Boards: Pacific Valley Apartments
This new apartment complex will bring much-needed housing to the Woodburn area. Pacific Valley Apartments will have a total of 204 residential units in 10 separate three-story buildings.
On the Boards: Burnside Apartments
Just inside Gresham city limits, near East Burnside Street and Southeast 167th Place, a multifamily
development is in the works for a 0.52-acre parcel. The project, designed by Leeb Architects for
developer West Coast Home Solutions, will add 24 apartments to the market.
“It obviously allows people to use the MAX (light rail) to commute,” said Robert Leeb, the firm’s principal
in charge. “And I think that in terms of the building and the design, we were trying to coordinate the
building with the context of the neighborhood. We had a group of townhomes next to us on the east, and
we wanted to be compatible with those owner-occupied row homes.”
Single-family developer taking on apartments
Wilsonville-based West Coast Home Solutions, since its inception in 2005, has developed single-family houses and townhomes in the Portland-metro area. But on a site along the Columbia River in North Portland, the company is making its first foray into apartment development. The Harbor Sky Apartments also represents West Coast Home Solutions’ faith in that market’s future.
On the Boards: Fairview Meadows
A new apartment complex coming to Fairview promises to provide views of the Columbia River Gorge. Fairview Meadows, planned for a 4.8-acre site at 22199 N.E. Sandy Boulevard, will feature five separate buildings, which will hold 196 residential units and four live-work units. The buildings will be three to four stories.
West Coast Home Solutions is the project's owner, developer, and contractor, and Leeb Architects is the designer. TM Rippey is providing structural consulting, with Vancouver, WA-based Standridge Design contributing civil engineering.
"We're trying to add to the success of Sandy Boulevard," Leeb project architect Steve Sandstrom said. "Fairview's become a lot more attractive as far as housing."
With companies like Amazon building large warehouses in nearby Troutdale, Sandstrom said the area is gaining jobs and a greater need for housing. Plus, the Fairview City Council last year voted to provide incentives for development on vacant land, he said.
Goose Hollow mixed-use project moves ahead
A proposal for a seven-story mixed-use building with 107 apartments in the Goose Hollow neighborhood has received the Portland Design Commission’s approval.
