Portland Ford Building

Portland Ford Building
2505 SE 11th Avenue at Division
My post about the Ford V-8 prompted Posthip Scott to point out that there is a Ford Building in Portland as well (Ford built assembly plants all over the country. There's probably one near you). This one was built in 1914 to build Model-T's. This was just 4 years after the Model-T started production. It operated for 20 years until the Model-A and the Great Depression came along.

It's been converted to office / retail space, which to my mind is a much better use of an old building than public storage, which is what the Ford building in Seattle has been reduced to.

Alicia Nagel Creative has a blog post about their new digs here.
