The Sky3 apartment community in downtown Portland announces it achieved LEED Gold certification from the U.S. Green Building Council.

"At Sky3, you can be environmentally conscious and still live a life of luxury," says Avenue5 property manager Warren Wittig. "A commitment to sustainable living is thoughtfully incorporated into the design to provide a quality and healthy environment to call home. Moreover, our residents appreciate how Sky3 blends sustainable features, natural elements, and a modern vibe."

The use of recycled materials is abundant at Sky3, from the distinctive reclaimed wood paneling in the lobby to an intricate metal sculpture by local artist Ivan McLean that redirects stormwater into planters.

"The sphere within a sphere is a new design from our studio," says McLean, whose private and public works are popular in Portland. "The contrast in size and finish is eye-catching, and hopefully, the spheres will draw attention to the bioswales and the importance of taking care of stormwater." A bioswale is a retention area designed to capture water and infiltrate the ground slowly. The sculpture works in conjunction with drought-tolerant landscaping and a drip irrigation system.

Sustainable features in the apartment units include large double-pane, low E, insulated windows that provide natural light, high-efficiency systems for lighting and mechanical (HVAC), water-efficient fixtures and Energy Star appliances. There is preferred parking for electric vehicles, and there are recycling facilities on-site for residents. Low VOC emitting materials were used during construction, and construction waste was safely recycled, reused and disposed of accordingly. Sky3 is a smoke-free community.

Located at 1221 SW 11th Avenue, Sky3 offers 196 apartment units, innovative amenities for active lifestyles, shared social spaces, and 14,500 square feet of ground-floor retail space. Retail tenants are Coava Coffee, Amazon and coming soon is Karam, a Mediterranean restaurant. Sky3 is developed by The Molasky Group and managed by Avenue5.

The community offers studios, one- and two-bedroom floor plans and penthouse units ranging in size from 518 to 1,416 square feet. Interior finishes include stainless steel appliances, two-tone white/dark brown contemporary kitchen cabinetry, quartz countertops, tile backsplashes, plank wood-style flooring. Residences feature dramatic nine-foot ceilings, spacious walk-in closets, washers, and dryers as well as large private balconies and patios in select units.

What truly sets this community apart are its amenities and social spaces including a demonstration kitchen, wine cellar available for private tastings, free Wi-Fi in common areas, a fitness center, game room, library, business center, meeting rooms and concierge service. The rooftop patio includes an outdoor lounge, covered seating, a fireplace and BBQ grilling stations. This pet-friendly community has a dog grooming station, and for bicyclists, a dedicated and secure storage room, wash and repair station. For more information, visit www.sky3pdx.com
