Manhattan Beach Condominiums
Rockaway Beach, Oregon
Owner: MBR Development, Inc.
Area: 23,000 sf
Manhattan Beach Condominiums is located on an ocean front property in Rockaway Beach, Oregon. The project had to overcome floodplain and local height restrictions to meet the owner's requirements for sixteen units with parking, constructed in a sustainable manner overlooking the ocean. A state park to the north allows for long term unfettered ocean views along the west and north edges of the site. Access is from the east along Highway 101, the coastal highway that runs the length of the State. Fan shaped to fit the site setback requirements and for better view capability, the building sits against the west and north edges of the property while a storm water bioswale and car access fill the rest of the site.
