Lake Oswego: Lake View Village


Lake View Village anchors Lake Oswego’s shopping district and works together with the adjacent Millennium Plaza Park to create a strong sense of place and gathering place for the community. The six retail/office buildings on the 2.3 acre downtown block surround a 365 space parking garage. The quality of the design and the attention to detail within the pedestrian realm is what attracts shoppers, restaurant patrons and strollers to this site.

Lake View Village is the result of a public/private partnership between the City of Lake Oswego’s Redevelopment Agency and Gramor Development, Inc. The Redevelopment Agency assembled the land and sold the developable portion to Gramor for retail and office redevelopment. In addition, the Agency provided $4.5 million toward the cost of the public parking structure, which is maintained by Gramor.

The goals for the project called for a development that would be more than just a place to shop. This project was intended to help revitalize downtown, enhance the downtown’s “sense-of-place” and to fit into the existing fabric of the downtown in a manner that would further Lake Oswego’s vision of a pedestrian-oriented, mixed-use urban village.


Funding for this project was provided by the Lake Oswego Redevelopment Agency and Gramor Development.
