Welcome to the Timeline Page for the Downtown Lake Oswego 137 Redevelopment


Fourth Floor of Building C Close to being Dry!

Hey – we’ll grab any good weather related construction news!

On the outside of Block 137 it’s lovely to see developing angles and the character of the buildings coming into focus. Take a look at the brick and shingles on Building C and watch how they put life and diversity of materials onto the exteriors.

Compliments coming in about how well our teams keep the traffic moving as the loading and unloading of materials takes place.

Here's what will be happening on site this coming week.

Building A along “A” Avenue

The roofers have started installing the TPO roof (the flame retardant, UV absorbing membrane) on the East side of the building and will be working to the West. This work will continue into April and is heavily dependent on the weather. Exterior crews have finished the sheathing on the East elevation last week and will now be moving to the NE and NW elevations to install the sheathing. Flashing was completed on the SW elevation last week and crews have moved to the SE elevation this week. Windows are being installed on the SW elevation this week and they will be installing on the SW elevation next week. Inside the building, crews are steadily working on framing the ceilings and soffits in the units and will move to layout similar to Building C once the ceilings and soffits are complete.

Building B along Second Street

On the North side, crews have framed and sheathed the parapet wall this last week and will be working on the sloped roof framing next week. In the center of the building, crews installed the wall panels this last week and are framing and sheathing the parapet wall this week and next week. On the South side, crews are setting the exterior wall panels this week and will be installing steel columns and beams next week.

Building C along First Street

The roof shingles started last week and will continue into mid-April. The brick for the chimneys will be moving to the East side of the building working North. The 4th floor is close to being dry. Once the floor is water-tight, crews will begin spray foam in the sloped roof areas and then rough in for mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems. Inside on levels 2 & 3, crews are framing interior walls and shaft walls. Elevator installers are about 85% done installing the elevator for the building. They will be moving over to Building A once the Building C Elevator is complete.
