Law Firm Inks Lease at Portland’s New 11W Tower

The under-construction 11W mixed-use tower in downtown Portland, OR has secured a new 12,000-square-foot tenant, according to the Portland Business Journal. Attorneys with International law firm Orrick Herrington & Sutcliffe LLP will move into 11W in the fall. The building is scheduled for completion within the next few months.

The 25-story, mixed-use development features six floors of office space above ground floor retail, with the upper floors reserved for apartments. Located in an Opportunity Zone in Portland’s West End, 11W’s developer, Downtown Development Group (DDG), says they are excited that companies like Orrick appreciate the building’s quality.

The lease is certainly good news for the downtown area which has seen office vacancy rise to 27% in Q4, according to CBRE. 11W amenities will include a fitness facility, bike parking and an upper floor event space. DDG is also seeking LEED Platinum certification for the building.
