Jackson Tower Portland Oregon

The Jackson Tower is a historic 12 story office building in downtown Portland,Oregon. It was built in 1912 and was formerly The Oregon Journal Newspaper Building.

It is a structure that is a bit amiss among the modern buildings that surround it. When it was built the builders used glazed terra cotta as the exterior sheathing over the building's steel frame.

The terra-cotta glaze contributed to keeping the building fireproof through the years. Over the years, the interior has been renovated and has been turned into office space.
