Access Notes

Check in at the security desk to get access to the 27th floor. This usually isn't required for official events and meetups.

Car Parking: There are metered spots on SW Oak and a handful of spots on SW Pine and a couple spots on SW 6th and on SW 5th. There are multiple City Center Parking lots that are typically $5 on weekday evenings (https://ccplots.myparkingworld.com/ccp/en?latlng=45.5221871,-122.67629119999998). There is a SmartPark garage on SW 3rd and Alder that's $5 (after 5pm), but please note that it is a 7 minute walk.

Bike Parking: On your bike, you can enter the building parking lot from SW 5th & Pine, go right at the bottom of the ramp, and head into the elevators that are directly ahead. The elevator on the far right has a special “go by bike” button. Use that to summon the elevator and make your way to 27. We have a few guest bike parking spots behind the reception desk.

via Trimet/Max: The Green, Yellow, and Orange lines go to SW 5th and Oak. The Green and Yellow lines go to SW 6th and Pine. Note, the Red and Blue lines at Mall/SW 5th Ave MAX Station are about a 7 minute walk. Multiple bus lines stop at SW 5th and Pine. Remember, Trimet is now supporting Hop cards (https://myhopcard.com/home/#/). The Trimet trip planner is here -- https://trimet.org/#/planner

We're on the 27th floor. Grab a name tag as you head off the elevator and head into the conference room.
