Pretty nice. I like the scale. The glass facade looks very intricate. It's rare these days that civic buildings are so elaborate. What's that big thing soaring on the left-center of the picture though?

Looks like a good start ...

... for the office. Seems to have a overlap look. The white tower in the image is the lower section of the FAA Control Tower.

Nice! Very nice. Glad they got creative with it.. their current building is kind of odd.

yikes, reminds me of ALB (Albany, New York) airport. Renderings were great, but the outcome was pretty boring and bland.

Nice facade on the garage, but the office portion looks like an afterthought. Hopefully the final product looks a bit more seamless.

I doubt there's any glass on the garage, too hard to keep clean. The skin is probably some kind of perforated metal, like on the tram, and the openings are, well, openings.

No, no, no. Of course not.

It'll look like a really, really big tin shed.... with a penthouse.

Good grief, can this forum go a day without being so frackin' negative? Do you really think the Port would design/build their headquarters at the airport and make it look like a "big tin box" after all the great design work that went into the terminal and concourses?

For the record I was being sarcastic too. Having not seen more details about the materials, or a better rendering, I have no idea if it will be a tin shed or something fantastic. Considering it is a disputed public project, it is possible they've cheapend the materials to justify adding the new Port HQs on top.

Portland International Airport (PDX) News

Magazine Names Portland Best Airport
PORTLAND - An annual poll of business travelers by Conde Nast Traveler magazine has chosen Portland International Airport as the best airport in the country for the second consecutive year.

The Port of Portland says the airport received the highest score among airports for comfort and design and perceived safety and security there. It also got added attention for its green energy efforts, such as solar panels.
