Edith Green – Wendell Wyatt Federal Building

The Edith Green – Wendell Wyatt (EGWW) Federal Building is an 18-story LEED Platinum-certified federal office tower located in the civic core of Portland. The original 1975 building was transformed from an outdated energy hog into one of the most unique and highest performing buildings in the nation. With its distinct appearance and innovative sustainable strategies, the EGWW acts as a metaphor for transparent government with a vigorous environmental agenda. 

The transformation was funded from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 and led by the General Services Administration (GSA). The design team included Cutler Anderson Architects (design excellence architect), SERA architects (executive architect), and PLACE (landscape architect).
