About Us About Us


Established in 2001 by West Linn native Mark Handris, Icon Construction & Development, LLC has been a premier home builder in the Portland area for over twenty years. Icon's impressive and diverse real estate portfolio ranges from entry-level attached housing to multi-million dollar custom estates; all built with the same high standards and attention to detail.

With a vertically-integrated team, Icon’s in-house EXCAVATION and land development departments ensure that our commitment to detail and quality begins at groundbreaking. Our dedicated sales team facilitates a seamless process from the very first showing to final key hand off. Our in-house DESIGN CENTER streamlines the selection process, making customizing your new home simple and exciting. And, our unsurpassed construction staff bring decades of experience to every home.

As a local company, Icon’s relationships in the community are long-standing and proven. We proudly support our economy by using local subcontractors, vendors, and suppliers with many of those partnerships going beyond fifteen years. We are deeply rooted in the community with much of our staff calling West Linn and the surrounding areas their home, and we regularly give back to the community by supporting/sponsoring local businesses, youth athletics, Fallen Heroes and community events. The Handris family also owns and operates Lil' Cooperstown, a neighborhood restaurant with locations in downtown Willamette and Oregon City.

Icon's COMMERCIAL division constructs, owns and manages various office buildings and retail centers around the Portland area. Our commercial portfolio includes retail, medical, dental, and restaurant spaces. Icon has also completed shell construction and tenant Improvement conversions for third parties.
