Formerly Station Place Lot 5, then the 9North Building, now called Tanner Point, this new office building by Hacker, GBD Architects and 2.ink Studio is open for business. It offers 167,000 square feet of office space, along with coming-soon retail on the ground floor. The eight-story building has parking for 55 vehicles with an additional 97 parking spaces at the nearby Station Place car park leased for the use of building tenants. At the ground level, a bike valet service operated by Go by Bike has parking for 133 bikes, along with a coffee counter and a bike repair service. Showers and 86 storage lockers will also be provided.
The site is bound by Northwest Ninth Ave., Northwest Northrup Street and the BNSF railway tracks. A rusted metal water feature brings rainwater to a spot next to the train tracks and drops it from long steel beams into a swale. The Portland Development Commission sold the land to Williams & Dame for $7.4 million. At the sixth level, the building structure is carved away, creating a roof terrace that aligns with the residential buildings across the street. A further roof terrace is created at level 8, in response to a zoning code requirement in the North Pearl that facades above 100 feet from the ground be no longer than 180 feet.
