Over the last 20 years, the Pearl has been transformed from an outdated and tired industrial area into one of Portland’s premier residential and retail districts. A century ago, the area went through a similar transformation—from a working class housing area at the edge of a marsh to the city’s premier industrial and warehousing area.  Many of Portland’s best known architects of the period designed buildings for important local and national companies. Most of these buildings remain, with their exteriors intact and new uses inside.
