On the site of the Oregonian's old paper storage facility, which Advance Central Publications sold in 2017 this 120-foot office building creates a natural corridor with the Timbers and Thorns home stadium. Press Blocks is designed to complement the existing neighborhood culture and channel the energy of game day into every day. Developer and property manager, Urban Renaissance Group manages 6.5 million square feet of Class A and historic office buildings in Portland, Seattle and Denver. Urban Renaissance Group's investment in Canvas and the extended Press Blocks development is part of a larger, long-term vision for this emerging neighborhood. The 23-story residential tower which Mithun designed for the next Press block to the east is on hold.
