 LHSSA Honorable Memorium, The Illustrious Franklin Drake

LHS Class of 1945

Mt. Hood Meadows by Dick Powers

Long-time Portland construction magnate Franklin Drake, whose work created a sizable list of Oregon landmarks, died on Sept. 13. He was 93.

Drake was born in Portland and graduated from Lincoln High School and the University of Michigan. He ran the Donald M. Drake Co. from 1960 to 1995, building it into one of the largest construction companies in the Northwest.

One of its highest profile jobs was the Vista Ridge Tunnels in the late 1960s. The tunnels were about 1,000 feet long and 600 feet underneath Portland’s West Hills.  Drake’s company built the Moda Center, Lloyd Center and the KOIN Tower.

For fun, he and his two brothers founded Mt. Hood Meadows, which is now the second largest ski resort in the state.  Drake, an enthusiastic skier himself, used helicopters to haul concrete and steel for the two original chairlifts. He managed to build a lodge, a parking lot, all the infrastructure and the lifts in a year and opened for business in 1967.  Mt. Hood Meadows now draws about half-a-million people a year, second only to Mt. Bachelor.

Drake served as president of the Multnomah Athletic Club and served on the board of directors of U.S. Bancorp, Portland General Electric and the Portland Chamber of Commerce. He served as a trustee on the Oregon District Council of Laborers Pension Fund.  The family is planning a celebration of life. A date has yet to be selected.

Land Acknowledgement:

It is important to acknowledge the ancestors of this place and recognize that we are here because of the sacrifices forced upon them. In remembering these communities, we honor their legacy, their lives, and their descendants -- past, present, and future.

Where Portland stands today are the historic homelands of several bands of Chinook-speaking people (including many Multnomah, Clackamas, and Watlata/Cascade villages). There were also Kalapuya (Tualatin villages) nearby and the Molalla people in the Willamette Valley. Today, their descendants are primarily members of the Grand Ronde and Siletz Confederated Tribes, with Chinook and other tribal relations at Warm Springs, Yakama, and the Chinook Nation. 

In the reconstruction of this institution, let us acknowledge that it was founded upon exclusion and erasures of many indigenous peoples, including those on whose land we are standing upon today. This acknowledgement demonstrates a commitment from Lincoln High School to work to dismantle the ongoing legacies and ideologies of settler colonialism.

Recycled Materials 

Hoffman Pacificmark used 10,000,000 pounds of recycled concrete saved from a local project site for the leveling fill and rock substrate. This recycled material will remain in place to provide support for the future track and field. This recycling effort kept a significant amount of material out of the waste stream providing material & cost efficiency.

PDC approves 17-story MODERA tower near Lincoln High School Campus

Call it Modera MAC Club.   (

The Modera tower will include a large parking garage to be shared with Multnomah Athletic Club members.

The design for a huge, new, mixed-use development has been approved for Goose Hollow. The 434,720-square-foot building won land use approval from Portland’s Design Commission last week. This complex will have 337 apartments as well as ground floor shops, and will include a large parking garage 

Mill Creek has built several Modera apartment complexes in Portland's Pearl District and downtown over the last ten years.

The commission voted 4-1 to approve Modera Main Street. 

Commissioner Sam Rodriguez, an executive at Mill Creek Residential Trust, recused himself.

Goose Hollow locals have long complained that a 17-story building would be too big for the space just across from the new Lincoln High School. The Bureau of Development Services says appeals against the decision can be filed after October 8.
