By Karen Robes Meeks

Portland, Oregon-based RKm Development has been tapped by the Port of Camas-Washougal to be lead Waterfront Developer, it was announced Tuesday. In the coming weeks, the port and the developer will hammer out an exclusive negotiating agreement.

Known for various mixed-use development projects in the Portland Metropolitan region, RKm Development has the expertise to create a multi-faceted public epicenter, with design and programmatic elements that will not only boost the local economic engine, but also amplify the unique amenities of the site to attract visitors, customers and users from around the region.

“Roy Kim and his team have developed a variety of dense, livable, mixed-use suburban districts,” said Port CEO David Ripp. “While the demographics for his signature projects are different, the approach is the same: Create a centralized community with diversity in mind.”
