The Oregonian news – Developer will add windows to Portland’s Yard building; city will help pay


The developers behind the new 21-story Yard tower at the east end of the Burnside Bridge in Portland say they will add up to 67 glass windows to the building in the wake of revelations it differed significantly from schematics approved by the city’s design commission.

The City of Portland will cover most of the cost through fee refunds. The Bureau of Development Services missed the changes to Yard’s design when it approved the project’s building permit.
