Helpful Information for Visitors to the Morgan Building

The Morgan Building was built in 1912, and is a designated Historic building. It is an eight-story red brick building at the southwest corner of SW Broadway and SW Washington Street. In our office, we have three large photos of the Morgan Building and Washington Street, which we obtained from the Oregon Historical Society. They were taken in the 1920's and earlier, and are on display in our suite on the 7th floor. Our law firm has been in the Morgan Building since 1992.

The main entrance to the Morgan Building has a large brass facade half-way up Washington, between Broadway and Park Avenue. The large lobby has had the tall ceiling arches restored to the original design by the architecture firm that occupies the 8th floor, BOORA. The lobby floors are the original marble.

For your visit, note please that all the outside doors are locked at approximately 6 pm on weekdays. If you have an appointment after that time, we will make arrangements to meet you at the front door.

For parking, there are several garages and flat lots in the immediate area. The closest is an underground lot, located underneath O’Bryant Square. The entrance is on the south side of Stark Street, just one block north of Washington, between Park and 9th. The other, almost as close, is the Alder Street Garage. The entrance is on the north side of Alder, between Broadway and 6th. Both are part of Portland’s “Smart Park” program, and have low rates for parking fewer than four hours. If you’re driving a vehicle too large for these garages, there is a flat-lot just west of the building, on Washington at SW 10th. For motorcycle parking, click here for a motorcycle parking map

It’s easy to get to us by public transportation. We are just two blocks north of the MAX light rail line, and a block or two up from the downtown bus mall. Portland has a relatively comprehensive public transit system, TriMet. Go to their website,, for route and fare information.

Tenants Inside Morgan’s Alley

Back in the 1960’s, Morgan’s Alley was a sort of a counter-culture area, with "headshops" and such. Today, it’s a pleasant, modern area of specialty shops, tucked indoors between the Morgan Building and its neighbor to the south. Enter through the Morgan Building lobby, or entrances on Broadway and on Park. Some of the tenant businesses in the Alley include:

  • Millinery Shop
  • Beauty Parlor
  • Shoe Repair Shop
  • Fireborne Glass Art Gallery
  • Northwest Wine Shop
  • Hunan Chinese Restaurant

Morgan Building Restaurants

The Coffee Plant

The Coffee Plant makes nice grilled sandwiches, good coffees, and they're learning how to make New York "Egg Creams!" (no egg, no cream, don't ask) with the genuine New York "Fox's U-Bet" chocolate syrup. They also bake their own pastries and cakes and offer free Wi-Fi Internet. Enter either from Washington Street, just west of the building’s front entrance, or from within the Morgan building, through the lobby’s double doors and into Morgan's Alley.

Hunan Restaurant

The venerable Hunan Restaurant can be accessed through the double-doors of the Morgan Building lobby, or by separate entrance on Park Avenue. Through Morgan’s Alley, you take a right inside Morgan's Alley. You'll see a staircase on your right, going up to a mezzanine. There you’ll find the Hunan Restaurant, featuring Szechwan and other Chinese food. Daily lunch specials are popular and inexpensive.
