BEAVERTON, Ore. – Join Mayor Denny Doyle, the Beaverton City Council, Metro Council, and project partners for a groundbreaking celebration and ribbon cutting ceremony as we welcome two new additions to downtown.
The events are Wednesday, May 22 from 2 to 4 p.m. at Beaverton Central, near the corner of SW Rose Biggi Avenue and SW Crescent Street. The groundbreaking celebration for the Hyatt House hotel will begin at 2 p.m. The ribbon cutting ceremony for The Rise Central will begin at 3 p.m. Street and lot parking available; the MAX Blue Line (Beaverton Central Stop) is conveniently located nearby.
“Our downtown is changing and I’m excited to see new developments taking shape in Beaverton’s city center,” said Mayor Denny Doyle. “Having new apartment homes and hotel rooms to welcome residents and visitors contributes to a livelier and defined downtown area. I hope everyone will join us for this special afternoon of celebrations.”
The Hyatt House is a five-story, 125-room hotel that will be operated by the Portland-based Canterbury Hotel Group and NewcrestImage Management, an operator of several hotels across the country, and will be constructed by Deacon Construction. The groundbreaking celebration will mark the beginning of construction for the new development.
The Rise Central is a mixed-use community with 230 apartments and ground floor commercial spaces and is now open and leasing. This urban-style community features expansive lobbies, community rooms and decks, keyless unit entries, bicycle storage rooms, plus bicycle and dog wash stations. The Rise Central was developed by local company Rembold Properties in partnership with Florida based Rescore. Since 1974, Rembold has developed more than $900 million of real estate.
The developments are located in Beaverton Central, the city’s new vibrant urban center that will bring more living, dining and entertainment to downtown. The 12-acre area, located adjacent to The Round between SW Cedar Hills Blvd and SW Hall Blvd, will feature both private and public development. The new developments join existing and future planned developments in the area, including the proposed Patricia Reser Center for the Arts and a seven-story district parking garage.
Project partners include Canterbury Hotel Group, NewcrestImage, Rescore, Rembold, Metro, and Beaverton Urban Redevelopment Agency.
