Share Article

Earth Advantage, a nonprofit focused on accelerating the creation of better buildings, is relocating to 623 SW Oak Street in downtown Portland as of October 28, 2013.

Earth Advantage is moving into a new office that includes a custom designed, glass-enclosed classroom. The improvements were completed using sustainable products that include low VOC paint, Forbo® (linoleum), Masland® (carpet) and a new Carrier® high efficiency rooftop mechanical unit. It also includes a beautiful Trex® rooftop deck where Earth Advantage will continue to host events in the coming years. SERA Architects generously supported Earth Advantage’s tenant improvements by donating a significant portion of their staff time towards the material specifications and design of their new office space. David Heslam, executive director said of the relocation, “We are incredibly excited about our move. The new office meets all our needs in terms of having an easy-to-access downtown location, tenant improvements made to green specifications and a brand new classroom space. Additionally, the rooftop deck will be a great location for events. We look forward to many years of furthering our mission at this new location.”

Earth Advantage spent two months looking for a new location suitable for their operational needs. The organization worked with Jake Lancaster, senior vice president at Jones Lang LaSalle in Portland to locate and secure the new office. Jake commented, “Earth Advantage is doing tremendous work in the community, and it was great to work with them on securing this new space in the emerging north district of downtown. This new location will greatly enhance their brand visibility and provides them with the kind of environment to show off their expertise, ideas and build on their partnerships.”

The new 7,500 sq. ft. office is located in a Downtown Development Group LLC building that sits at the corner of SW Oak and Broadway. The new Earth Advantage headquarters address is: 623 SW Oak Street, Third Floor, Portland, OR 97205 with its entrance on Oak Street.
