Rockwood Rising! A Dynamic mixed-use program. Creating an economic engine to transform Rockwood into a prosperous, healthy, and thriving community. We are beginning design. Help us this June. Info here!

We are beginning design. Help us this June!

WHAT IT IS: We're creating an economic engine to transform Rockwood into a prosperous, healthy, and thriving community that welcomes and creates opportunities for all.

WHERE: A 5.5-acre Commission owned property at 18535 SE Stark Street - the former Fred Meyer site. We are designing several new buildings and a public plaza.

Hello Rockwood,
My name is Roy Kim and my company, RKm Development, has partnered with the Gresham Redevelopment Commission (GRDC) for the exciting development of the Rockwood Rising site. We are honored and eager to have this opportunity to create a new community gathering place in the heart of your energetic, growing community.

Our experienced staff of designers is currently engaged in the extensive planning process, along with our friends at GRDC. We are working with YBA Architects, Place Studio, and Robert Foster Associates to develop a space that this community will be proud to call its own.

Rockwood is a special place. We want to create a space thoughtfully and carefully, with the hopes of building something that everyone can take pride in and engage with. Your help will be critical to designing, developing, and building a community that meets your needs. We look forward to the opportunity to design this together, and hope to see you at Rock the Block on June 3rd & 4th!

Additionally, we want to learn more about you! You can call us at: (503)618-2416, or email us at: rockwoodrising@greshamoregon.gov.

Thank you, Rockwood community, for allowing us the opportunity. Together, I wholeheartedly believe that we can make Rockwood rise.

Sincerely,
Roy Kim

City of Gresham selects developer for Rockwood catalyst site, Completion 2017

On Tuesday, Gresham City Council members approved the selection of the project's developer who will help pay for the project and bring in an architectural firm to design a 5.5-acre campus for technology, media, and entrepreneurial opportunities. Rockwood residents should also find restaurants, banking services and grocery items in an area that's seen major chains close their doors.

City leaders have so far found funding sources of about $11.5 million to $12.5 million of that cost to build at the project location, called by officials as the catalyst site. With a population of about 16,500, Rockwood is known for its high rates of poverty and crime but also its diversity and youth.

"There are a lot of young smart people and a lot of great ideas that don't have an opportunity at this point," City Councilor Mario Palmero said. "I still think the American dreams lives in Gresham more than anywhere in the state of Oregon."

City Council members chose RKm Development, owned by Roy Kim, over two other candidates: Pate Retail and Hanlon Development. RKm built Bethany Village, a mixed-use development of residences, office and retail spaces just north of Beaverton. The developer will work with YBA Architects and Robert H. Foster Consultants on the project, according to their proposal.

Architects and designers would be influenced by Latin American, Northern European and Asian elements, such as "eclectic architecture, non-traditional plant materials, and a wide color palette," according to their proposal.

"To capture a multi-ethnic experience, the public spaces and circulation would take cues from Latin American urban plazas and Asian market streets while also acknowledging the nascent block structure of the immediate vicinity," the RKm proposal states.
