March Update and Groundbreaking Ceremony Scheduled for the Kellogg Middle School

From the Kellogg Rebuild website:

March 2019 

The Kellogg Middle School Rebuild Project is moving forward toward construction of an innovative new middle school in SE Portland.  It replaces the 100-year-old Kellogg building that served several generations of students.  Demolition of the old school was completed in 2018 and materials from the that building have been salvaged for re-use in the new building. The final phase of design for the new Kellogg Middle School is underway and will be complete in early 2019.

In January the City of Portland approved the Kellogg project’s Conditional Use and Adjustment application. This opens the door for the project team to submit the Building Permit application in March, which the City has committed to include in their Fast-Track Review Process.
Planning for the new Kellogg Middle School program will be launched by the district in 2019. This process will include hiring a new planning principal.

Going forward construction is anticipated to be complete by the end of 2020. At that time the new building will be outfitted with furnishings, fixtures, and equipment in early 2021 to allow school administrators to train new teachers and staff ahead of the arrival of students in the Fall of 2021.

Ground Breaking Ceremony!

A groundbreaking ceremony is being planned for Saturday, 1-June, at 10:00 AM. We will share more information about this event as it is available.
