Those giant sliding glass panels are fantastic. Connecting to the outdoors is a shared Portland value, and this creates that connection in a unique way.

Completion expected 2019
Design a dynamic and forward-thinking creative office building that provides flexibility, openness, and adaptability, while taking advantage of city views and connection to the active urban environment.
Guided by biophilic design principles and occupant health, Eastside Office prioritizes access to natural daylight, connections and views to the neighborhood and landscape, and deeply integrated sustainable design strategies. At six stories, the building includes five floors of new office space with ground-floor retail and restaurant space along an active multimodal thoroughfare. Glue-laminated columns and beams, and cross-laminated timber floors, are fully visible throughout the interior, a nod to the timber-heavy industrial past of the neighborhood. Double-height spaces lend volume and circulation to the interior, and allow tenants to create more intimate office layouts than a typical single-floor plan.
