Burnside Bridgehead apartment tower to be named "Yard."
Not The Yard.
Skylab Architecture and Key Development Co. of Hood River have released the name of the 21-story apartment building rising just eight feet from the east end of the Burnside Bridge.
Yard will have landscaped terraces at bridge level. The first five stories will form a podium of parking and street level retail, as well aas amentiies for residents. Everything above bridge level – 284 apartments - will be housing. The floor plan of the tower is a near-parallelogram. The design is said to include a hot spring-themed spa. Skylab is known for its faux rustic settings and was in early on the antler craze 11 years ago with the Doug Fir Lounge. A spokesperson for Skylab called Yard progressive design based on an individual projects brand and story.
Yard is expected to open in 2016.
