Portland has a habit of keeping secrets, and the PPAA building is one of them. The depth of texture and color seems endless, serving as a constant reminder of the mixed history of the building. Every surface has a story to tell and it's history is about to get a new chapter with the opening of the Portland Assembly later this year.
This first floor used to be a cluttered film and camera store. You can see the layers of something left behind literally dripping down the walls.
The bones of this building are solid, and its sure go undergo a dramatic transformation before it serves as a functioning space again. But with Summer and Patrick's resolve it has the potential to be one of most handsome event spaces on the East Side.
