A $2 million office originally built for luxury condo sales in Portland, Ore., may be converted to a self-storage facility. Built in 2004, the “Discovery Center” was shut down after condo sales flopped; but the residents of the condos that did sell need a place to store their stuff.
Built in Portland’s South Waterfront neighborhood, the property was developed by Gerding Edlen Development and Williams & Dame Development and designed by Ziba Design. Hennebery Eddy Architects has filed preliminary plans to build a 110,000-square-foot storage facility on the site. The land is still owned by a company affiliated with Gerding Edlen.
Williams & Dame is building another storage facility across town, on the fringe of the Pearl District. It is designed by Holst Architecture.
