Originally built as a warehouse in 1889, Overland Warehouse has served as temporary housing for immigrant families, a neighborhood market, and a nightclub over the years.

In 2016, UD+P completed a full renovation of this gorgeous brick building that preserved and restored its historic structural elements while adding modern features that are needed for today’s creative office tenants. Unique among older brick buildings in downtown Portland, Overland features a stunning atrium built into the third floor that brings light down to the center of the building.

As part of the renovation, the building underwent a complete seismic retrofit. Overland has 25,000 sq ft of flexible, creative office space on three upper floors atop 5,000 sq ft of flex commercial/retail space on the ground floor.

Overland is located in the heart of Old Town, a downtown Portland neighborhood that is home to some of the city’s cultural treasures. Old Town has also become a magnet for innovative start-ups and technology companies. Overland is just steps from the world famous Lan Su Chinese Garden and the MAX Green and Yellow lines.
