Just two blocks north, another development project is underway at 235 NW Park Ave. “The Lemon Hotel", a renovation of 10,000 SF mixed-use building that will include office, retail and an additional second story penthouse space with a rooftop patio. The owner, Tim O’Leary has employed Siteworks Design|Build team to handle the seismic upgrade, interior redesign, and preserve the building’s original heavy timber, steel and concrete.
