Otak to take us one step closer to the Riverwalk!


After reviewing many proposals, the Willamette Falls Legacy Project has chosen Otak to bring the world-class design of the Willamette Falls Riverwalk to life!

The local, award-winning design and engineering team will be leading a team that includes Mayer/Reed, Snøhetta, KPFF, Pacific Habitat Services, and others with their construction management expertise. Over the next three years, Otak will oversee the creation of safe and secure interim public access onto the former Blue Heron paper mill site, a prominent view of Willamette Falls, habitat restoration along the riverbank, and building demolition that will prepare the site for future phases. With only a year until construction is set to begin on phase one of the Riverwalk, you can see them now at the site preparing and developing a plan to get started!
