New Pearl Office Project – The Overton

Posted By johntarantino1 on July 6, 2010

Overton Pearl LLCPortland’s Pearl District has a new office project under construction.

The U.S. General Services Administration announced today that construction has begun on the Overton Pearl, a 61,000-square-foot office project to be located at 1455 N.W. Overton St., in Portland.

The GSA in 2009 announced it would be moving its Portland field office of the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services into the new building, which is designed by Fosler Portland Architecture and is being developed by Overton Pearl LLC. The project was first announced in 2008, but Ross Buffington, spokesman for the GSA, said the developer needed extra time to start construction of the project.

The GSA plans to lease 65 percent of the building, which will be Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design gold certified.

Portland’s current immigration services office is located in the 511 Federal Building on 511 Northwest Broadway. When the GSA moves out, Buffington said it plans to donate the building to the Pacific Northwest College of Art, which owns several properties nearby.

A groundbreaking ceremony will be held July 6 for the project. Buffington said the ground floor of the project is already being constructed.
