Historic Spalding Building

The Spaulding Building, built in Downtown Portland in 1911, is listed on the National

Historic Register. MCA was commissioned to restore and update the 12-story building,

which involved fire/life safety and code upgrades, general historic retrofitting, roof

repair, and restoration of rusty and structurally compromised cornice steel supports.

New roof top flags and dramatic up-lighting increased the building’s visibility from the

east side freeway and Morrison Street Bridge. Exterior work also included restoration of

fine ornamental cast iron previously hidden behind a ground floor facade. This building

currently houses ground floor retail and office space.
