Swift Headquarters Renovation

Portland, OR

An innovative creative office space now fills a former manufacturing site and warehouse in NW Portland.

About this Project

The transformation of a former awning manufacturing facility and warehouse into the home for Swift Agency involved updates to all building systems, ADA compliance on the surrounding sidewalks, permeable parking surfaces, and landscaping. The 30,000 sf space sits on the northwestern edge of Portland’s Pearl District. 3J assisted with the project’s associated public sidewalk improvements.
