Welcome to the Wildlife Blocks. A collection of work spaces inspired by Portland’s creative culture and the beauty of the Pacific Northwest. Located just East of the Burnside Bridge, the Buck and Bison Buildings combine timber and steel of the WWII era, with modern industrial design. Walls of windows, skylights and bay doors open to the great outdoors. High ceilings and open floorplans invite collaboration with the freedom to customize the environment to suit your work. Your team. Your vibe. The buildings are armed for tomorrow’s technology. And natural light floods the space to fuel energy and creativity. We’ve curated a spirit here, and invite like-minds to join us.
Six incredible spaces feature concrete floors, old growth timber beams, 10 to 30 foot ceilings and a mix of amenities including: industrial artifacts such as bridge cranes and boilers, spacious conference rooms and glass bay doors.
Five light-filled spaces feature multi-level floor plans, exposed concrete & brick walls, 12 to 40 foot ceilings and a mix of amenities including: industrial artifacts such as jib cranes and bank vaults, showers and large bays doors that open to the outside.
Adjacent to the Buck Building, the Bear Block has parking stalls available for lease by tenants of the Wildlife Blocks.
Located in Northeast Portland, just beyond the congestion of the downtown core, the Wildlife Blocks occupy a quiet corner of the Central Eastside Industrial District.
Burnside is a main thoroughfare through the fast-changing neighborhood where building conversions and new construction are multiplying residential and commercial space.
