Formerly known as the Holman Building, the RiverEast Center sits prominently on the east side of the Willamette River, highly visible from the west side of downtown Portland. Interface Engineering, was challenged with the task of transforming a warehouse, abandoned for 40 years, into a renovated LEED mixed-use office and commercial building.

They achieved it by designing a system 51 percent more energy efficient than a new building constructed to current code. The LEED Gold building is now home to an architectural design firm, a software company, a light water craft center and several retail tenants; home to about 250 workers.
