  1. Re: Portland Building
    I sincerely hope that Mayor Ted Wheeler, with his strong fiscal management background, will be able to change the direction of this Titanic heading for a cost overrun ice berg. Sell the Portland Building, requiring that the exterior be retained. It could be renovated into a hotel. Build a new state-of-the-art public services building.

    • Agreed as well. $195 million to retrofit this behemoth? It cost $180 million to build Park Avenue West from the ground up. Preserve the Portlandia statue and design/build a new, well functioning, energy efficient tower in its place with that money.

  2. ideally i would like to see a middle finger given to graves by deconstructing everything but the base/south facade/west facade and a glass tower rising out of the skeleton 🙂
