The Vanport Building brings together four separate yet interconnected institutions – Portland State University, Portland Community College, Oregon Health & Science University and the City of Portland – to allow for greater cost efficiencies in the construction of this $100 million project. The eight-story, 190,000-square-foot building is constructed with PT slabs, concrete columns, concrete shear walls and auger cast pile foundations. Located in an urban setting on PSU’s downtown campus, the front curved façade is designed to complement the curve of the adjacent existing MAX tracks. Designed to achieve the LEED Gold certification, this $70 million project was completed in Fall 2020.
