Grow Tall in Portland

Posted on February 1, 2010. Filed under: Uncategorized |

The Edith Green-Wendell Wyatt Federal Building in downtown Portland Oregon will be the beneficiary of a $133 million federal stimulus grant from the Office of Federal High-Performance Green Buildings.

The 18 story tower will be retrofitted with the latest in energy efficient and green design concepts, including a 200 foot tall garden that will replace the building’s western facade.  The upgraded building will be 65% more energy efficient and save $280,000 annually in energy costs.

The architecture firm Cutler Anderson is the lead design.
