Roundhouse Agency Relocating HQ to PDX’s Custom Blocks

Roundhouse Agency plans to relocate and expand its corporate headquarters at Custom Blocks, a creative campus prominently located in Portland, OR’s Central Eastside Industrial District. The creative firm signed a lease for 16,200 square feet of space within the campus’ North Block building, located at 975 SE Main.

The property, which recently completed its metamorphosis from an older manufacturing campus originally built during the 1940s and 1950s into a renovated 72,000-square-foot Class A office, is owned and was developed by Capstone Partners and JV partner Premium Property USA.

Capstone Partners’ Chris Nelson says, “When we acquired the property in early 2017, we envisioned a new life for this former metal stamping plant that would create a unique workplace opportunity for modern creative services and technology occupiers in the heart of the Central Eastside Industrial District.”

Cushman & Wakefield’s Brad Carnese represented the tenant. Carnese, along with Mark Carnese and Doug Deurwaarder advised the owner.
