Meriwether Releases Preliminary Design for New Portland Office Development
PORTLAND, JULY 1, 2015 – Meriwether Partners provided an early look at plans for their office redevelopment of the existing building at NW Hoyt and NW 15th Street in Portland’s Pearl District. Meriwether plans to significantly renovate the building, including adding floors, completing a comprehensive seismic upgrade, installing new building systems, window systems, and common areas. Upon completion, the new building will offer a highly desirable office environment featuring open floor plans, high ceilings, exposed concrete columns, abundant natural light, and outdoor roof decks with views of the city and west hills.
