Glisan Center

The Glisan Center was designed by legendary and iconic NW architect, Pietro Belluschi, for the Sweeny, Straub & Dimm Printing Company, and constructed in 1946. The Glisan Center is on the Nation Register of historic places and is a rare example of Belluschi’s industrial design work. The property is a precursor to Belluschi’s body of work in the international style. Exterior decoration is minimal, simple geometric forms are used and a plan where form follows function drives overall design.

The property is located in the heart of one of Portland’s highest density neighborhoods and enjoys unparalleled access and visibility from all four sides. The property is close to Portland’s most affluent residential areas, including the West Hills, the Pearl District and NW Portland.
