A New High‑Rise Lincoln High School Will Elevate the Modern Education Experience

Lincoln High School

In a joint venture with Pacificmark Construction, Hoffman is in preconstruction on a new six-story high school for Portland Public Schools. Built on the athletic fields of the current high school’s campus with students remaining in the existing building during construction, safety is the number one priority in the team’s planning efforts.

This new 292,000 SF high school will be a six-story urban “high-rise” building designed to accommodate a surge in student population in Portland Public Schools. The school is being constructed on the athletic fields at one end of the school’s campus to allow students to occupy the current facility during construction; stringent safety protocols and intensive preconstruction planning will protect students on the active campus. The new building includes specialized classrooms for 2D and 3D fine arts, adjacent flex spaces, STEM labs, and a maker space. The building will have a variety of sustainability features and innovative wayfinding to help students and staff navigate the “high-rise” wing of the school. New athletic facilities will include a 1,700-seat main gym, auxiliary gym, weight room, wrestling/dance room, and a new track and field. Primary features will include a new commons and outdoor plaza at the main entrance; the team is working with Portland’s Regional Arts and Culture Council on a large mural that would front the building. Also included are a new 500-seat auditorium, black box theatre, dedicated band and choir classrooms and associated practice rooms, along with a career technical education space.
