Embassy | The building has been called by many the “crown jewel of the Alphabet District”. Impossible to duplicate, The Embassy building stands today as it did when first built in 1923 as one of the truly elegant and most desirable addresses in Portland. Reminiscent of upper Eastside residences in Manhattan and designed by noted architect Carl L. Linde, it is one of the few examples of early 20th century Georgian style architecture remaining in Portland.
Its impressive brick and sandstone exterior, the stunning lobby, the generous proportions of its rooms, the detailed woodworking and its private interior courtyard place it amongst the very best of its kind ever constructed in the City of Roses. A preserved treasure, The Embassy is listed as a contributing structure within the National Register of Historic Places.
Located in the heart of the Historic Alphabet District with a walk score of 99, this location offers easy access to public transportation including MAX, dining at award winning restaurants, and easy walking distance to a number of fine grocery stores, bars, cafes and boutiques. Nearby attractions include Couch Park, Washington Park, The Japanese Gardens, Providence Park, The Rose Gardens, NW 23rd Ave and Forest Park trails.
