30 Nov Reconstruction of the Portland Building
City set to kick off $195M reconstruction of the Portland Building, shroud Portlandia statue.
Folks looking to get some business done with the city of Portland have been met with closed doors since earlier this fall — at least at the city’s Portland Building.
That’s because all 1,400 or so employees who work in the building have been temporarily relocated to make way for a $195 million reconstruction project that’s about to kick off in earnest.
Though initial interior demolition work has already begun, the city is hosting an official groundbreaking for the project at 10 a.m Monday, December 4, at the Portland Building, which sits at 1120 S.W. 5th Ave. Construction is expected to wrap up by the end of 2020.
