The Union Bank of California Tower is 15-story office building located on Broadway and Washington streets, in the heart of Portland’s business and hotel districts. The tower was designed by the firm of Anshen and Allen of San Francisco in the International-style, with a strong presence on Broadway. The most prominent feature of the Union Bank of California is its exposed service cores, clad in light gray slate with a greenish tint. It is said that the slate was quarried from the same area in Wales as the stone used in Stonehenge.
The building is owned by both the Goodman family and Melvin Mark Companies, and has approximately 200,000 square feet of office space as well as 339 below grade parking stalls, which are available on a 24/7 basis. Major tenants include the Union Bank of California’s Oregon headquarters, Pacific Interpreters, Oregon Anesthesiology, Oregon State University as well as numerous telecom companies, as a result of the building’s ideal location across the CenturyLink and AT&T switch stations.
