Completed in Fall 2015, Framework is a glass and timber tribute to Portland’s industrial history and a home for retail business, creative workspace, and innovative partnerships.
As a nod to our Northwest heritage, Framework features handsome glulam beams that echo the distinctive look of the signature heavy timber that support the neighboring American Brush Building. These exposed structural elements produce a distinctive design feature while using sustainable wood materials instead of old growth timber.
The first floor has 1,175 sq ft of street-facing retail in the front and parking in the back. Each of the four upper floors has nearly 5,000 sq ft of workspace, allowing tenants to adapt the space to fit their needs and create collaborative work environments. By offering flexible, open spaces that can meet the needs of a variety of tenants, Framework is helping to foster creative partnerships in the neighborhood.
Framework has excellent access to multiple modes of transportation, sitting within two blocks of four bus lines, the Portland Streetcar, and a popular bike commute route. The building features first-rate facilities for bike commuters, including showers on every floor and covered, secure bike parking.
