That block was originally planned for the Oregon Sustainability Center that proved too be far too expensive.

Ah. I have heard of this but I'm not very knowledge about it since it had came and went before I became interested in Portland development.

According to the DJC (behind paywall):

Bora Architects has done some preliminary design work for the project, Effros said.

A request for proposals for a design firm will be posted in April, and design work is slated to begin in July. The team is aiming to break ground in 2018.

Portland colleges, city tout new $100 million academic building in downtown



Portland State University struck out in 2015 when it asked state lawmakers for $17 million to help build a new home for the Graduate School of Education. But the upside did not become apparent until Monday.

That's when PSU President Wim Wiewel revealed a bigger and bolder vision for the city-owned parking lot on the edge of campus, and the new partnerships that would make it happen: A $100 million hub for public health, education and city services.

The new tower at Southwest Fourth Avenue and Montgomery Street, is expected to open by 2020. It brings PSU, Oregon Health & Science University, Portland Community College and the city together in an effort that wasn't certain less than a year ago.
...continues at the Oregonian.

Here's a link to SERA's blurb about it - my firm was actually looking at being a tenant in the building for a while. Was a nice idea but impractical - rental rates in order to make it pencil out were going to be extreme.
