Property Overview

The Crane Company Building, one of the most architecturally distinguished buildings in the NW 13th Avenue Historic District, was built in 1909 and designed by prolific Oregon architect W.C. Knighton. Its original use was as a manufacturing facility, warehouse, and office building for the national plumbing valve & fittings company. Crane Co., the largest company in the world of its kind during its heyday, utilized the building as its Northwest hub until 1964, when it sold the property to another manufacturer.

In 2007, the property was purchased for historic redevelopment as residential, traditional office, and retail use as the Pearl District was fast-evolving. Now known as the Crane Lofts Condominiums, the building is a primary contributor to the NW 13th Avenue Historic District, featuring characteristic brick masonry construction, the original loading dock on the warehouse building (the subject property), overhead doors, metal awnings, original windows, and other distinguishing architectural features.

Trade Area Overview

The Pearl District, so-named by a gallery owner in the early 1980s for the rough warehouse exteriors that hid beautiful works of art within, is the area bound by the Willamette River to the north, West Burnside to the south (the Downtown/Central Business District neighborhood sits south of Burnside), NW Broadway to the east (the Oldtown/Chinatown neighborhood sits east of Broadway), and Interstate 405 to the west (the Northwest District neighborhood, which includes NW 23rd Avenue, sits west of I-405).

Over the past 25 years, the Pearl District has been reimagined from turn-of-the-century warehouses and abandoned railway yards to a dense, bustling upscale neighborhood with converted residential lofts, office and creative work space, and an abundance of eclectic food and retail establishments.
