PORTLAND, ORE.—Restore Oregon has named the boutique SCP Redmond Hotel as one of 11 historic projects from across the state as winners of the 2020 DeMuro Award for Excellence in Historic Preservation.
After suffering a prolonged decline, the most prominent building along Redmond’s Main Street has come back to life as a boutique hotel, co-working, dining, and community meeting space. The project included careful rehab of the Georgian facade, addition of a rooftop lounge, and restoration of its dramatic lobby.
The award is the state’s highest honor for the preservation, reuse, and revitalization of architectural and cultural sites. Launched in 2013, the DeMuro Awards program recognizes the teams of architects, engineers, designers, contractors, developers, property owners, and community leaders committed to restoring and honoring Oregon’s historic architecture and cultural heritage. The program is also intended to inspire others and share solutions to the challenges encountered.
The 49-room property opened in November 2019 following a two-year $7 million renovation designed by Kelly Ogden of Portland, Ore.-based ELK Collective. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, SCP Redmond’s renovation was made possible through a public-private partnership between the city of Redmond and the developer. The renovation preserved the property’s historic character while merging its classical design with elements of SCP’s trademark mindful, eco-friendly style.
“We are truly honored with this award as it reflects SCP’s vision to make the world around us a better place by serving those who value personal wellness, social good and the environment,” stated Ken Cruse Co-Founder and CEO of SCP. “In addition, it is the manifestation of our environmental ethos and commitment to using sustainable and regionally sourced materials while also modernizing and upgrading the property to ensure the highest level of service and comfort for our guests and the community at large.”
