  1. Mark my word that skyscraper won’t be built or if it does it’ll be much shorter..

    For whatever reason during this building boom any tall building over 21 stories in this town doesn’t get built. It either gets cancelled or becomes dramatically shorter..

    See 11West, Oregon Square, 4W, Press Blocks, just to name the few tall buildings proposed latley and what happened to them..

    This won’t be anywhere near the way it’s being proposed

    This is stumptown
