The Glisan Center is a 38,000 SF neighborhood retail center located at the highly visible corner of NW Glisan Ave and NW 16th Ave in Portland, OR. The building was constructed in 1946 and was designed by renowned Architect Pietro Belluschi and is occupied by well-known and established Portland retailers such as, Pearl Hardware, Mullowney Printing, The Portland Fly Shop and The Studio NW.
The Glisan Center was designed by legendary and iconic NW architect, Pietro Belluschi, for the Sweeny, Straub & Dimm Printing Company, and constructed in 1946. The Glisan Center is on the Nation Register of historic places and is a rare example of Belluschi’s industrial design work. The property is a precursor to Belluschi’s body of work in the international style. Exterior decoration is minimal, simple geometric forms are used and a plan where form follows function drives overall design.
The property is located in the heart of one of Portland’s highest density neighborhoods and enjoys unparalleled access and visibility from all four sides. The property is close to Portland’s most affluent residential areas, including the West Hills, the Pearl District and NW Portland.
