618 NW Glisan Building
Acquired by Schlesinger Companies in 2014, 618 NW Glisan is a four story quarter-block building containing approximately 40,000 square feet of office and retail space. Originally built for the Oregon Cracker Company in 1897, the building features a dark red brick exterior designed in the Romanesque Revival style. Corbels and bands of brick accentuate the skillfully proportioned fenestration and define the floor levels inside. In 1979, the building was placed on the National Register of Historic Places and noted as a fine example of Romanesque Revival architecture showcasing noted architect H.H. Richardson’s prevalent influence at the time. The building contributes to the character of the Old Town area and is significant to the architectural heritage of Portland. 618 NW Glisan is located on Portland’s Transit Mall one block away from the Pacific Northwest College of Art’s new headquarters. The building features secure bike parking for tenants’ employees and on site storage. The property was sold in 2016.
