Officials from three higher education institutions and Portland's city government broke ground on a $104 million, seven-story building where they'll all share space.

The building at the corner of Southwest Fourth Avenue and Montgomery Street  is a joint effort between the city, Portland State University, Oregon Health & Science University and Portland Community College.

It will house classrooms for the Portland State College of Education; a School of Public Health shared by Portland State and OHSU; and Portland Community College's dental hygiene and dental assisting programs. 

It will also include offices for the city's Bureau of Planning and Sustainability, as well as a community dental clinic and low-cost mental health services. The ground floor includes retail and restaurant space. 

The project is expected to open in the fall of 2020.
