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):

Quote:
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.

PSU heads down the home stretch on its new School of Business Administration center (Photos)



In the old days of MBAs, students would come to class, sit through lectures and then leave.

But these days, there's much more collaboration that goes on. It's a much more team-oriented approach. Students work together on projects, and after their classes are done, they stick around and continue collaborating — assuming they have a place to do that.

At Portland State University's old School of Business Administration building, there was no such place. But in the forthcoming Karl Miller Center, students will not only have plenty of room for collaboration — there will be 21 classrooms and 12 team rooms — but simply more room in general.

Jordan Schnitzer gives PSU $5 million for art museum in downtown Portland



Jordan Schnitzer, the Portland real estate developer and philanthropist, will give $5 million to Portland State University to open an art museum in the heart of campus.

The school and the Portland native announced the gift during a Thursday morning news conference. The 7,500-square-foot art museum will bear Schnitzer's name and occupy parts of two floors of Neuberger Hall.

PSU is planning a $70 million renovation of the building, backed by $60 million in state bonds approved by the Oregon Legislature in 2015. Construction is expected to begin this summer and finish in 2019. The school still needs to raise another $5 million from donors to pay for the project.

In an interview, Schnitzer said he's familiar with the building from his drives along Southwest Broadway through campus. "It's pretty dismal going by that concrete bunker," he said in an interview. "It looks like a prison."

That is awesome, PSU is really feeling like it is becoming more and more like a legitimate university.

PSU gets $5 million for Neuberger Hall renovation from biggest donor



Fariborz Maseeh already has his name on one building at Portland State University, and now the mechanical engineer, philanthropist and entrepreneur is donating millions to help the downtown campus transform another.

They continue to make me jealous of what the campus is becoming. So much better looking than when I went there.
