One of Portland's very few major skyscrapers appears in
this view, which was taken along SW 6th Ave. some few blocks north of the heart of
downtown. The US Bancorp Tower is the second tallest building in the
city, rising to 536 feet.
The intersection in the foreground is with NW
Everett St. Buildings in the immediate area are low, and vacancy signs
are prominent. The coming of light rail in 2009 may help improve
future prospects in this area.
