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.
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!
