Pettigrove Venture, LLC recently raised its own bar with a new industrial redevelopment in Northwest Portland. Previously, the company worked with Green Building Services, Inc. (GBS) to earn a Silver certification under the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED Green Building Rating System for the Triangle Building. The company collaborated again with GBS and included Stem Architecture, Madden & Baughman engineering, Robertson & Olson Construction on the team to pursue a Gold rating under LEED Core & Shell for the Fitzgibbon Glass Building.

Adapting the 35,000-square-foot concrete warehouse into a commercial showroom space, Pettigrove Venture is developing the Fitzgibbon Glass Building into a viable attraction that will help revitalize a neglected but now “up and coming” area of town. As cities across the nation redevelop their urban industrial building stock, this project offers a model of environmentally responsible rehabilitation and upgrade of warehouse properties.

From a sustainable perspective, the site selection met key criteria. The development reclaims a former industrial site but its proximity to the urban core affords it with in place infrastructure and access to public transportation. Starting with appropriate demolition and abatement, the team mitigated hazardous materials on the site and implemented on-site recycling efforts. More than 95 percent of the project’s construction waste was diverted from the landfill.
