“The best way to predict the future is to design it.”

— Buckminster Fuller

221 Molalla represents Clackamas County’s first LEED Gold certification. On this property, Redside took what was the old Copeland Lumberyard, which was covered with blackberries and overgrown trees, and recycled more than 95 percent of the construction waste, or 26,000 pounds of debris. When the land was cleared, Redside created a premier mixed-use, building that now houses mostly long-term government tenants eager to demystify and demonstrate for the public how easy, effective and wonderful it is to work in eco-sensitive, LEED-certified buildings.
