In early December the NWEI staff said goodbye to its downtown location and moved across the river to the renovated Olympic Mills office building in inner Southeast Portland.  While we’ll miss the view of Mt. Hood and our favorite food carts, we’re excited about our new location.

Once a flour mill producing Bisquick and Wheaties, the 1920s building has been renovated into a bright, creative, mixed-use space that includes offices, a restaurant and a coffee shop.  The high ceilings and exposed pipes and beams create an open and spacious feeling in our office, despite it being smaller than our old space.

In many ways, this renovated old mill building reflects NWEI’s own efforts to grow and adapt to a changing world while maintaining a solid foundation.  The mix of old and new suggest a sense of history and possibility.  The process of moving itself provided us with an opportunity to look back at where we came from and as we go forward, to think creatively about our place in the world.

Our new address is 107 SE Washington, Suite 235, Portland, OR 97214

If you are in the neighborhood, stop in and say hi!
