This building is really going to dominate this area. I took a photo from my favorite viewpoint in the city on the southend of downtown and you can see the impact this building will have and how much it will stand out.

Not from that vantage point urbanlife! It's not a tall building and not very distinctive from a distance. At street level it most definitely will have an impact, particularly from the south and east. This and the Ladd Tower will be quite the glossy/glassy duo!

Yeah. I had trouble finding the Ladd Tower from that view. Glassy buildings don't really command much attention unless they are heads and shoulders above the skyline. This a great building from a close-up view though.

The expansion comes just four months after AWS Elemental — a developer of video processing technology which Amazon acquired for $296 million in 2015 — moved into a new headquarters across the street in the 1320 Broadway Building, where it occupies 101,000 square feet.

Rumors have been swirling in Portland's commercial real estate scene for months that Elemental or possibly even parent company Amazon.com Inc. (NASDAQ: AMZN) would be leasing space in the tower.
