I know double-load corridor design is standard in Portland, but it leads to poor daylighting in units that are not corner units. In the 22, there’s a lot of shotgun style units, where the back of the unit (kitchen) hardly gets much daylighting. Sunrose and 937 address some of the challenges of the double-loaded corridor, but I think the double-loaded corridor should be abandoned as a standard design. I say this as someone who likes and lives in a condo, and would like to see more condos in Portland.
