share share share share share share

Portland is a city in flux. With its expanding economy, businesses are setting up shop in the City of Roses and knowing what projects are in the works is essential for businesses looking for office space. Portland State of the Market is an event where key figures in Portland’s development share details about evolving office space, affordable housing, and new developments and acquisitions. This year, Truebeck’s COO Nick Pera is speaking for the Construction and Development update portion of the event.

With over 28 years in the construction industry, Pera has overseen projects in the commercial, life sciences, education, healthcare, and mixed-use sectors. Pera holds a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering from Santa Clara and for the last 14 years he served on the Civil Engineering Advisory Board and as an adjunct lecturer for his alma mater.

The Portland State of the Market event is being hosted by Bisnow on September 11th, 2019 at 7:30 AM. The event has keynote speakers who will address questions such as who are the prominent players in Portland’s expanding office space market and what are the notable developments coming to the city. The opening keynote speaker will be Mayor Ted Wheeler followed by panels on Notable Investments and Acquisitions, Is Mass Timber the Future, and Construction and Development Update.

Truebeck was recently awarded a mixed-use building on the corner of North Beech Street and North Vancouver Avenue for Willamette Stone. Truebeck Construction is partnered with Fieldwork Design and Architecture to deliver the project with a design-build method.

As Truebeck brings its same progressive construction practices to Portland as it has in the San Francisco Bay Area, expect to see more construction projects shape Portland for years to come.
