PORTLAND, OR / COMPLETED 2008
Housed in a spacious, historic property on the Willamette waterfront, Olympic Mills Commerce Center is a forerunner in Portland’s creative workforce. OMCC sits at the center of the Central Eastside Industrial District, an area dappled with warehouses that has become one of the most vital commercial districts in the city and a major destination for a host of flourishing companies in the Pacific Northwest. The building boasts breathtaking views of downtown Portland, easy access to major freeways and public transportation, and flexible common spaces to fit your needs.
A UNIQUE HISTORY
The Olympic Cereal Mill’s construction in 1920 quickly established Portland as the preeminent West Coast locale for shipping of flour products. In 1923, a subsidiary of General Mills purchased the property and began producing several key American brands there. Today, Olympic Mills Commerce Center is featured in the National Historic Register and has been fully renovated while maintaining the industrial finishes that keep the building connected to its storied and productive origins.
EXTRACTED WOOD REFRAMES MODERNIZED INTERIOR
Large wood cribs that once extended upward to hold bulk amounts of grain were extracted and remilled to construct two-story screens overlooking the spacious interior.
CLASSIC COMPONENTS AND PRESERVED DESIGN
The OMCC building has been fully updated to the highest standards while maintaining original hardware, beams, bolts, and industrial finishings to create a unique environmental aesthetic.
