West Burnside Street has long been a barrier between Portland’s downtown core and the Pearl District. Because it caters more to the automobile than the pedestrian, redevelopment on the street has had to focus north from the Brewery Blocks rather than in a typical radial fashion. The Weave Building aims to surmount this impediment by stitching together the West End neighborhood south of Burnside with the Pearl District to the north. A proposed mixed-use, 9 story building consists of retail and office space that strives to connect tenants to each other, to their neighborhood, and to the city at large.
