SW 4th Ave. & SW Montgomery St. Building

PSU, PCC, OHSU, and City of Portland are constructing a new building on the current site of a parking lot east of ASRC. The 3/4 block site will house the "L-shaped", seven-story, 174,500 GSF building, is bound by public transit on four sides, and will contain a variety of uses including ground level retail, classrooms, a dental clinic, academic and non-academic offices.
