Portland City Storage: 368' and 294' towers, 100,000 sq ft of solar pannels | PRO

this is pretty much a go, the neighborhoods association has even signed off on it.

What a great concept!

This is really exciting- not so much for the buildings themselves, but for what they represent. I hope it's successful and inspires similar projects.

They look much bigger then they really are. Probably due to the horizontal lines. I like the look.

These are huge, the taller one would be the 5th tallest in the city (6th after the Moyer tower, proposed, but 1' ahead of the Standard Insurance). Given the fact that these would be in a low rise industrial area, they would truly seem epic on at least the scale of Portland.

OMG how did I not know about these! Fantastic!
Portland is such a perfect city for a landmark project like this, as far a green buildings go.

All of these new glass towers going up should make use of solar panels.

Save on the energy bill and lead the way towards more sustainable development!!

This is probably dead since the Portland Storage website is down.

Since the pictures are missing from the first post:
