This plaid -patterned building with a green neon hat (added in
1995) is one of the city's most notable buildings, albeit for all the wrong reasons. Read what Portland's two most eminent architectural writers have to say about this eighteen-story building. Brian Libby named it "the ugliest building in Portland," and Randy Gragg noted that "among other architects [it is] the most loathed building in downtown." I guess it's official.
