In 2017, The Seattle Times declared that “Oregon’s economy has hit a sweet spot”, with strong wage growth and high levels of employment making the state one of the US’ post-recession success stories. Portland, Oregon’s largest city, is a key driver of this turnaround. The city’s traditional shipping industry has helped it to thrive over the past decade, with the Port of Portland now the US’ largest freshwater port. At the same time, a thriving tech sector has emerged in the city, with such household names as Hewlett-Packard, Mozilla and Squarespace calling Portland home and giving rise to the Silicon Forest tech cluster.
Located just a couple of hours away from the economic hub of Seattle and just five hours’ drive from western Canada’s primary city of Vancouver, Portland is remarkably well-connected. Furthermore, Portland International Airport offers domestic and international flights,while abundant rail connections allow quick, easy access to California, Canada and the entirety of the US West Coast.
Located right in the centre of the city, the World Trade Center offers professional office space in an excellent location. If you require a more affordable serviced office location, the ELW Building offers excellent rates just to the north of the main city.
As well as offices for rent, our business centres in Portland have bookable meeting rooms, where you can pay by the hour for the space you need, and prestigious virtual offices where you can set up your company.
