Pearl West Office Tower
LEED Silver (pending)
Hacker in collaboration with GBD Architects
Inspired by the warehouse buildings of the historic Pearl District, Pearl West is a nine-story office building that responds to the different views, street character, and pedestrian experiences of Northwest Portland. The ground floor is home to 10,000 sf of retail space and features a solid building edge and a deep façade, increasing sidewalk depth and making space for café tables for a more pedestrian-friendly block. A dramatic canopy, reminiscent of the canopies over loading docks, marks the main entrance, and a covered terrace on the top floor offers views east to the mountains.
