A KBS + Sterling Bay Development

Landmark Exterior. Modern Interior.

Reintroducing the Meier & Frank Building.


A historic downtown gem will soon reach a new level of distinction. In 2017, the first five floors of this 16-story architectural classic will be transformed into a creative office space unlike anything else in Portland.

Oversized floor plates with towering ceiling heights will be bathed in natural light. Flexible work spaces will allow innovative companies to evolve their cultures. Renovations will preserve the architectural greatness of the past while achieving full LEED certification for the future.

Modern amenities will abound, from an invigorated retail level and artfully redesigned lobby to a state-of-the-art fitness center. Tenants will have access to perks of The Nines Hotel upstairs, including two restaurants and an expansive rooftop bar and lounge.

There is no better location in Portland. The Meier & Frank Building spans a full city block across from the northeast corner of Pioneer Courthouse Square, a downtown hub known affectionately as Portland’s “living room”.

Four MAX Light Rail lines intersect right in front of the building, while multiple bus stops and Biketown stations surround it. Portland Streetcar stops are a quick three block walk away. Within a mile are hundreds of restaurants, cafes, local and big name retailers, breweries and Portland’s most popular food truck gatherings. The newly opened Pine Street Market, a bustling food hall with gourmet vendors, is just blocks away.

Tenants will have access to perks of the Nines Hotel upstairs, including its two restaurants, expansive rooftop bar and lounge and its stunning accommodations.
