The Westridge Lofts turned an eyesore lot with a challenging layout for building design to a beautiful apartment complex that now provides housing to an under supplied and quickly growing area of the City of Camas. The innovation in design that Romano Investment Group, Massaad Engineering, and EL Architects produced to make this 7-year vacant, financially nonviable lot functional for housing was no less than impressive. Through dedicated teamwork and thorough communication, this project was taken from design to completion in the short span of 3 years.
Construction of the Westridge Lofts consisted of a three acre lot development with the vertical construction of an 86,000 square-foot, four story building.Site improvements on the lot included storm, water, and sewer utility upgrades, grading, new asphalt pavement for the parking lot, new concrete sidewalks, and landscaping. Construction of the apartment building included 100 units ranging from studio, one bedroom, and two bedroom living spaces; an elevator shaft and three concrete staircases; and a lobby, fitness room, and leasing center.
