Green Initiatives


Being an expansive, new project located in an urban space, PBG will need to go above and beyond current green building expectations. The future of building in and around Portland must be green, which is why we hope to be at least 50% energy self-sufficient initially, reaching 100% percent in 8 to 10 years.

Other potential green applications for the project:

  • Bioswales
  • Environmentally-friendly pesticide usage
  • Green roofs
  • Habitat restoration
  • Introduction of climate-adapted plants
  • LEED-Certified buildings
  • Solar power
  • Usage of recycled materials where appropriate
  • Xeric/drought tolerant gardens
