With Portland’s reputation as a “liberal utopia” suffering a palpable dent, news about the city’s third-largest commercial building facing foreclosure is the icing on a cake no one wants a piece of. This building, Montgomery Park, is up for grabs—set to be sold off to the highest bidder outside the MoMA County Courthouse on February 14th, 2024. Far from the stereotypical image of Portland being a haven for hipsters and natural beauty enthusiasts, this development shines a glaring spotlight on the city’s crumbling commercial real estate scene. It’s almost poetic, really: Portland’s collapse has reached a point where even the buildings are trying to leave town. Ah, the sweet scent of fiscal calamity in the morning!

This foreclosure is far from a localized problem; it’s symptomatic of the larger issues plaguing not just Portland but other downtowns across the nation. Although the nationwide trend of remote work contributes to a certain extent, Portland has its unique mix of challenges, including skyrocketing vacancy rates and a less-than-ideal street condition. Factor in the climate of social unrest, and it’s no wonder businesses are eager to relocate to safer pastures. After all, would you want to ink a new lease when you could be greeted at your office door by who-knows-what? The financial tumble of this behemoth, formerly valued at $255 million and recently at $187.5 million, is not just a foreclosure. It’s a billboard-sized warning sign saying, “Reconsider your options; the city’s not what it used to be.”
