The U.S. Bancorp Tower is a 42-story, 163.38m skyscraper in Portland, Oregon. It is the second tallest building in the city after Wells Fargo Center, and with its nearly 69000m2 office space, it's the largest in Oregon in terms of volume.HistoryDesigned by Skidmore, Owings and Merrill (SOM) with Pietro Belluschi as the consultant, the tower cost $60 million to construct. Ground was broken on May 29, 1981, and the building was largely completed in June 1983. It was dedicated on December 1, 1983. The tower adjoins U.S. Bank Plaza at 555 SW Oak Street, a 7-story, 497800sqft building constructed in 1974. A tower expected to rise about 37 stories was already part of the bank's long-term site plans at that earlier date, but that phase of the plans ended up being delayed until the 1980s.Originally, the building served as the national headquarters of U.S. Bancorp, and was the regional headquarters of that organization until a 1997 merger moved the corporate offices to Minneapolis, Minnesota. U.S. Bancorp has 480000sqft leased until 2015.During the 1980s and 1990s, the top floors held the headquarters of Louisiana-Pacific.Since a $4 million renovation in 2002, the 30th floor of the tower has been occupied by the Portland City Grill, Portland's top-grossing restaurant. It has been cited as the restaurant with the best view in Portland.

  • In Portland, the big pink anywhere enough to know a famous building. I have a top Steak House, go to the expensive price of about 50 fires in the evening. Lunch lunch time at 15 to visit the fire hot enough burgers we recommend all correctable in prospect.

  • The Tower is a great place to go to really see vistas of Portland and Mt Hood. Go to Portland City Grill for Happy Hour for the best of both worlds: amazing sushi + amazing views = nirvana.
