The Henry is getting an ‘Occupied Seismic Remodel’

IMG_1281The Henry, in downtown Portland, built in 1909, is having some work done on it.

The proposed design (well, now obviously approved) includes:

repairing or replacing deteriorating existing exterior building features, upgrading the building to minimum life-safety seismic requirements, reprograming the level 1 and basement use, and add approximately 1,870 square feet to the six-story mixed-use development.

And, what’s an occupied remodel? Just what it sounds like:

As part of the project, a partially occupied renovation requirement exists in the development and construction agreements. The partial occupancy requirement includes maintaining periodic occupancy of two ground floor commercial tenants through phased construction.

When it originally opened in 1909, the apartment building was described as one of “the most stately, distinctive and best arranged office buildings on the coast.”
