pdx name that building starting 7.02.09
There¹s a building in Portland¹s west end on 12th and Washington that¹s nearing completion. The building¹s designers have thought of every detail, except for a name. In true Portland fashion, they¹re launching a "Name It Contest", asking Portlanders to visit the site (http://www.pdxnamethebuilding.com/) and help choose a name for the building. The prizes are pretty unique: first place names the building and is the key guest for the opening party. Second place names the eco-roof and can host the first party there and the third names the film studio (which will be lit in neon) and, again, is able to host a viewing party there. All winners have their personal names featured on plaques, making them a permanent fixture in Portland¹s architecture! The contest kicks off July 2 and the winners will be announced at a First Thursday party on August 6.
