Dogwood Development Group proposes a 2 Story Medical Office Building located at 7023 SW Beaverton Hillsdale Hwy, Portland, OR 97225 - on the corner of the impressive 6-way intersection of Scholls Ferry Rd, Oleson Rd, and the Hwy.

The site consists of 3 contiguous parcels, totaling 2.65 acres of rare undeveloped land within the heart of the Raleigh Hills town center area. Currently occupying the easternmost parcel is a longstanding veterinarian office ran by Dr. Daryl B Leu, the owner of the site.

The site presents a few notable challenges due to its proximity to the intersection, access to the parcels will likely be limited to a single “right in, right out” on SW Beaverton Hillsdale Hwy. It remains uncertain whether the current access through SW Dogwood Ln (a residential street serving the veterinary clinic) will remain viable after significant development of the land A gradual, yet unmistakable slope within the topography of the site also makes for an exciting obstacle to be overcome.

Through much deliberation, and a consultation with local planning staff, our development team has opted to consider the current zoning (OC - Office Commercial) under the Unincorporated Washington County Community Development Code to be the guide for our development proposal. If this site were to truly be developed, a successful zoning change might produce an entirely different highest and best use.

As proposed, Raleigh Hills Medical Center will be a 2-Story (Class A) Medical Office located in the affluent suburban area of Raleigh Hills near Southwest Portland. Intended users of the space will include pre-lease commitments from a major medical provider such as The Oregon Clinic, who will occupy the ground floor in its entirety, with 4 separate medical office suites available on the upper floor.

Construction will be tilt-up concrete, with surface area parking filling the remainder of the site. With sustainability still in mind, the southern yard of the building will contain a large bioswale to help with water run-off Most importantly, the large and iconic trees on the existing eastern parcel will be preserved as part of our design.


Each winter and summer, a team of students from Portland State University’s Master of Real Estate Development program are tasked with creating a development program for an existing site in the Portland or Seattle region. These teams produce a development concept through ingenuity, research, and consultation with experts in the real estate industry. NAIOP has generously sponsored our team and provided a venue for us to present our plan to the public.
