2010 Top Projects


Welcome once again to our annual profile of the Central Oregon commercial construction and real estate industries. We have selected 21 projects this year, based on hard construction costs permitted in 2009.  Many have asked how we choose the projects, and after talking to architects, developers and builders in the region, the criteria to list the largest projects, based on hard cost, permitted last year made the most sense.

There are a wide variety of projects this year from schools and a manufacturing headquarters to a medical clinic and a rural airport remodel. This variety helps our community to grow in many different industries. Some of the projects are still under construction, while others are complete or near completion.

In total these projects alone will bring more than $135.6 million into our economy. Amazing as it may sound this is actually one million more than the previous year.

There are more great projects in the tri county area that may not have qualified under these criteria, but you can be assured that they will be featured in an upcoming issue of Cascade Business News.
Many thanks to all of the owners, developers, contractors, architects, brokers and engineers who took the time to provide us with much of this information.
