Luxury has always been about the highest quality, the highest status and the best experience. But a new element has entered the discussion and while the classic definition of luxury remains, time, one of our scarcest resources, has become an important additional measure. Using time effectively, efficiently and enjoyably is luxurious. That’s where this 16th-floor, true penthouse atop The Casey in the heart of Portland’s sought-after Pearl District comes into play. Meeting and exceeding every element of the definition of luxury, this mansion in the sky is an unparalleled premier residence with an entertainer’s layout, gorgeous finishes and a premium location. Every element was carefully considered and sourced creating the perfect aesthetic and atmosphere to spend your valuable time.

Originally built as the personal residence for developer Gerding Edlen’s Mark Edlen, this unit is one of only two on the building’s top floor. The LEED-Certified Platinum building was the first in the country and contains only 60 units with a low 10% rental rate compared to an average of 35% in the area. As one of the nation’s leading developers of urban and highly-sustainable developments, Edlen’s unit features the building’s best views of the West Hills, the cityscape, Mt. St. Helens and Mt. Hood.

When the current owners purchased the unit it had never been lived in and they enlisted interior designer Sandra Lamer to fully outfit the 4,500-square-foot space. With a stunning blank canvas of light-filled rooms, many featuring full window walls, and rich, mahogany hardwood floors, Lamer sourced items from San Francisco, Seattle and Los Angeles design centers including Holly Hunt, Donghia and A. Rudin as well as several custom-built pieces.

It was the chef’s kitchen, deck, views and the space to create a feeling of home that really attracted them to the unit. Beyond the gorgeous views, the outdoor space is cleverly connected to the kitchen via a convenient runway making entertaining outside a breeze. Spanning one corner of the 16th floor, the deck includes water and natural gas hookups and plenty of space for lounging and dining while enjoying the view. The Crestron home automation system controls music throughout the residence, inside and out, as well as thermostat and window shades.

The kitchen is a beautifully designed space that is as gorgeous as it is functional. A combination of glossy white and rich wood custom cabinetry and Cararra marble countertops set the stage for a sleek, classic kitchen where friends and family will love to gather. Top-of-the-line appliances include a six-burner plus griddle, a 42-inch Wolf range with dual ovens, a Wolf warming drawer, a Wolf microwave, two Asko dishwashers, a SubZero glass door refrigerator with four freezer drawers, and two SubZero glass door wine refrigerators and SubZero beverage drawers in the bar area. The nearby walk-in pantry includes a coffee station and ample additional storage. Window walls that extend through to the adjacent dining room and living room flood the space with natural light and frame a view of Mt. Hood, Mt. St. Helens and glimmering city lights.

The living and dining rooms are a large, open space with a stunning chandelier defining the dining space. The living room encompasses the corner and features a gas fireplace with a granite and Venitian plaster surround. To the left of the fireplace are French doors that lead to a home office with built-in bookcases on one wall and a built-in desk with custom storage cabinetry on the opposite wall. French doors on the opposite side of the fireplace lead to a powder bath and down a short hallway to the deluxe primary suite with a private entrance from the elevator lobby. This secluded location provides quiet and privacy to this peaceful sanctuary that includes a huge walk-in closet with custom storage features including enclosed cabinetry, accessory drawers, shoe storage and a storage island with mirrors. The bedroom enjoys views of the West Hills and the ensuite bath features heated marble floors, heated towel racks and a beautiful freestanding soaking tub. The frameless glass walk-in shower has multiple heads including a rain shower head and floor-to-ceiling mosaic tile.

At the opposite end of the residence is a comfortable family room or secondary office attached to the kitchen. Ceiling-height built-in bookcases and a desk make this an ideal flexible work or relaxation space. This wing also includes three additional bedrooms, two with ensuite baths. The first bedroom features a Mt. Hood view and a deluxe ensuite bath with Ann Sacks tile and a Waterworks soaking tub. The second suite features a comfortable bedroom and an ensuite bath with a pebble floor treatment and a walk-in shower. The third bedroom is oversized and shares a hall bath. The laundry room and a large storage room are also located nearby.

The Casey has the unique distinction of being 50% more energy efficient than comparable buildings of its size with solar panels on the roof that generate energy for the common areas and a rooftop eco garden designed to lessen water runoff. Developed by Gerding Edlen and designed by GBD Architects, construction was completed in 2008 and the building exceeded the requirements for its Platinum LEED certification. 

With Caffè Umbria located in the lobby and Chef Rodrigo Ochoa’s stylish new Janken restaurant just across the street, this Pearl District location is enviable. Not to mention the proximity to the Brewery Blocks, Powells City of Books, Orangetheory Fitness, Whole Foods and lululemon all within a few blocks. When driving is necessary, the unit comes with three parking spaces with close easy access to the elevators. The Casey also includes 24/7 security and a front desk concierge.
