In June, Bill Wyatt, executive director for the Port of Portland, provided welcoming remarks at a dedication ceremony for the new Portland Field Office for the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) in Cascade Station. The Port’s involvement in the project traces back to the start, by leasing the ground where the facility was constructed.
The new building originally broke ground in December 2010. Its 8-acre campus is located at 9109 N.E. Cascades Parkway, adjacent to the Target store. Construction of the $60 million project generated approximately 600 jobs. The four-story, 121,000-square-foot building is now home to over 200 agents and employees.
“These kinds of numbers help underscore the critical importance of shovel-ready land to our economy and our ability to retain and grow professional service jobs locally,” said Wyatt.
Wyatt also complimented the foresight of the Molasky Group to design the structure to earn LEED silver certification. Similarly, the Port’s nearby headquarters on Airport Way is certified LEED platinum.
Located just off of Airport Way and I-205, Cascade Station is a mixed-use development and 800,000-square-foot retail center. It is a development of CenterCal Properties, LLC, which owns and operates seven shopping centers in the western U.S.
