Brad Malsin

Before co-founding Beam Development,
Dr. Bradley Malsin was a optometric vision rehabilitation specialist. In that milieu, Bradley anchored a vision rehabilitation practice in Manhattan, and also taught and conducted research in restorative and rehabilitative vision loss techniques, both domestically and abroad.

Brad relocated to Portland, Oregon in 1992, and established Beam Development with his wife Elizabeth. While the Company's original focus was the historic restoration of 1-4 unit plex projects, the 1999 acquisition The Historic Fairmount Hotel transitioned Beam's development focus to larger, yet also historical projects.

In 2002, Beam's focus shifted to an 'industrial adaptation' project in Portland's Central Eastside Industrial sanctuary. This group of buildings, presently known as the Eastbank Commerce Center and Water Avenue Commerce Center, were completely and sustainably revitalized, and today house a wide plethora of retail, design and light production facilities, showrooms and office-flex space.

Since 2005 Brad has spearheaded additional projects including his largest project to date; the 172,000 square foot B&O Warehouse located in the Central Eastside Industrial Sanctuary. Renamed the Olympic Mills Commerce Center, this 8 story high-rise was placed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Currently, Brad is principally involved in ushering several new projects into fruition.
