Towne Storage – Adaptive Reuse Renovation

Towne Storage, a historic 100,000 sf building originally constructed in 1916, underwent seismic reinforcement and a transformation into creative office spaces. A sixth-floor, 9,000 sf penthouse was added and included a roof deck with incredible downtown views. The scope also incorporated envelope improvements, restoration of the existing water tower, new MEPFS throughout, a new roof, elevator core, and all exterior sitework. Many of the historic windows on the east and west sides were able to be salvaged and fully repaired in place. The south side windows also received new wood windows built matching historic details. The successful completion of the Towne Storage building adaptive reuse restored a historic landmark in Portland’s Central Eastside and repurposed the space to serve modern office needs.
