PORTLAND, OR—Dozens of workers, elected officials, and community leaders planned to gather in Portland today to honor Workers’ Memorial Day (April 28) with a ceremonial groundbreaking of Lloyd District Commons, a new construction investment by the AFL-CIO Building Investment Trust. Workers’ Memorial Day events were held across the country to remember those who have suffered and died on the job, and to renew efforts for safe workplaces. The groundbreaking ceremony was for a new $43.2 million multifamily project at 330 Multnomah Street in Portland, that will create hundreds of construction, service, and maintenance jobs performed by highly trained and expert union workers. The property will consist of a six-story structure containing 186 rental apartments and 190 parking spaces. Construction is expected to be completed in July 2015. Lloyd District Commons is adjacent to the Convention Center and near the Rose Garden Arena and the Lloyd Center Mall. The property will also feature approximately 3,500 square feet of street-level retail space. A lease has already been executed with Starbucks (who previously operated a drive-thru store on the site) for 1,850 square feet of the retail space. The trust has ten projects currently in development across the country. Total development costs for these projects is approximately $1.1 billion, and they are expected to create some 5,500 union jobs throughout the course of construction. Scheduled to attend the event were the Oregon AFL-CIO, the Northwest Oregon Labor Council, the Columbia Pacific Building Trades Council, the Oregon State Building and Construction Trades Council (OBTC), the AFL-CIO Building Investment Trust, project developer Legacy Partners Residential, Inc., project manager Rembold Companies, PNC Realty Investors, Inc., and the AFL-CIO Investment Trust Corporation.
