Historic Bank Block Renovation

The renovation of the 270,000 sf Historic Bank Blocks (HBB) in downtown Portland included demolition and construction of the historic lobbies, creative office and white box tenant spaces, and refreshed common spaces – including an exterior courtyard and upgraded MEP systems. Additionally, an amenity area with a fitness center, yoga room, locker rooms, bike room, and lounge/game area was added for all tenants on the 5th floor of the Wells Fargo Tower. The project also included a new rooftop walkway to improve the connectivity of the three buildings.

The Historic Bank Blocks consists of three separate buildings occupying a full city block. The Wells Fargo Building was completed in 1907, while the addition of the US Bank building, originally completed in 1917 and expanded in 1925, doubled the existing footprint. The final section of the block, US Motor Bank, was constructed in 1956 and added two floors of office space and three levels of parking.
