GRAPHIC COURTESY OF THE WINDWARD - A ground-floor site plan for The Windward shows the location of retail and commercial spaces (brown), community amenities (red), a variety of apartments (grey, blue and purple) and townhomes (olive gree). Most of the future retail space still does not have publicly announced tenants, but the plan does include the new homes of Salt and Straw, Chuckie Pies and others.The Windward opened its residential leasing office this week and has begun offering tours of a model apartment for prospective tenants of the mixed-use development in downtown Lake Oswego.

Construction is expected to wrap up on the project within the next three months, officials say, and the first residents are expected to move in between March 15 and April 15.

Emails sent to the waiting list of prospective renters include a wealth of new information about the project, including tentative apartment pricing and site plans that show the layout of each level of the three buildings that comprise the development.

The site plans also show the future homes of previously announced retail tenants. Salt and Straw will be located on the corner of First Street and A Avenue, for example, while Bamboo Sushi will reside next door on First Street.

GRAPHIC COURTESY OF THE WINDWARD - Level 2 of The Windward is home to a variety of apartment sizes: urban one-bedrooms (purple), larger one-bedrooms (gray), two-bedrooms (dark blue) and studios (olive green).Chuckie Pies will face Bamboo Sushi from across the public walkway between First and Second streets. Starcycle and the Richard Henry Barber Company will also be located along the walkway, while Adorn will sit across First Street from Lake View Village.

The remaining ground-floor retail spaces are still listed as "Future Retail."

Two hundred apartments will be located on the three floors above, with configurations that range from studios and "urban one-bedrooms" to one-, two- and three-bedroom units and townhomes.The listed monthly rents range from $1,648 to $6,917, depending on the size of the apartment and the duration of the lease.

Residential parking options include lift parking, single parking and tandem parking, with pricing ranging from $125-$225 per month. The complex will include 430 parking spaces, 135 of which will be public parking to serve the retail areas. The public and private parking areas will use separate entrances on the east and west sides of the development.

The apartment complex will be managed by the real estate company Greystar.

A list of amenities attached to the emails lists a lobby area with a coffee bar and package delivery locker for residents, a club room, a central courtyard with barbecue grills and a bocce ball court, a rooftop conservatory that can be reserved by residents, a fitness center with exercise and yoga rooms, a dog wash station, bike parking and a one-bedroom guest suite for residents who may have family or friends visiting.

Individual apartments will also feature washers and dryers and air conditioning. Some of the penthouse units include gas fireplaces and vaulted ceilings.

The leasing office, which opened Jan. 8, is currently located inside Lake View Village at 33 B Ave. The Windward itself is located on Block 137 in downtown Lake Oswego, which was the site of a 1950s-era, red-brick shopping center owned by the Wizer family.

The project broke ground in October 2015 following a lenghty legal battle in which some Lake Oswego residents challenged aspects of the buildings' designs.
