They are beautiful and too good for such a patrician city which sees its self as weird. Portland is too beige in its thinking and design for these structures.

John Pearson

It is time, rather way past time, for the major West Coast city known as Portland to let go of its provincial past and reputation for timidness and finally embrace what it is: a major West Coast city. Please give real consideration to towers that would absolutely speak well of Portland and actually garner respect for boldness. Seattle has been in that seat all too long. Go for it, Portland! Soar above the naysayers, for goodness sakes!
