An expansion in scope to the currently under construction renovation of a former YMCA building has been presented to the Design Commission.

The core and shell renovation is being designed by Bora Architects, who were the original designers of the 1977 building. The client for the project is Seattle based developer InterUrban Development, who now wish to add an additional floor to the building to meet the needs of the future tenant. The building will be the new Portland base for sportswear company Under Armour, who will complete separate tenant improvements to the interior of the building.
