August 5, 2013: Design Process 90 Percent Complete

The design process for the Hannah Mason Pump Station Replacement project (previously named Fulton Pump Station) in Willamette Park is 90 percent complete.

The process includes analyzing the pump station’s schematic and site development plans, looking specifically at layout, landscaping, parking, driveways, signs, scale, architecture, and other design and functional factors. This will help to determine how the pump station will look and how well it fits in terms of its relationship with surrounding uses, neighborhoods and the community as a whole. In addition, the process will evaluate conformance with code requirements and City development standards. 

MWA Architects is the Portland firm that designed the 9,600-square-foot concrete pump station which will replace the century-old Fulton Pump Station a few blocks away and deliver drinking water to a large part of Southwest Portland. The Portland Water Bureau and MWA Architects are dedicated to making sure the pump station building is expansive enough to house five electric pumps but remains as unobtrusive as possible to the neighborhood.

When the design review process is complete, the Portland Water Bureau will be issued a building permit.

Construction is set to begin in 2015 and is scheduled for completion in 2016.
