The Portland Building, designed by Michael Graves and built in 1982 as administrative offices for the City of Portland, is an award-winning design of Post Modern architecture. The building was later placed on the National Register of Historic Places as a building of “exceptional importance,” but it currently faces problems with its structure, exterior, and operational systems that repairs alone cannot address. To protect and preserve this major public investment, the City has initiated a $195 million project to reconstruct the Portland Building by the end of 2020. The City will create an adaptable building that will last 50-100 years, providing a productive work environment for employees and a welcoming space for community members.
