It looks a lot taller than 650 ft,in reference to the building around it.

well the building is in the waterfront park so the building is a lot closer to the river than the rest of downtown. and at this angle it gives it somewhat of an advantage.

I really don't think this would help Portland it might actually be a bad thing in my opinion since obsevation towers are becoming more of an obstruction instead of an atraction...

I dont think it should be in the location it is proposed. It would look much better over by the Rose Garden area, away from downtown a little bit.

It depends on how good they look and where they are built.

It doesn't really have any...class or looks. Portland deserves better. Instead of this, MulvannyG2 should design something like the Bellevue Towers for Portland. If only they had a customer...
