Merging cultures to create an inspiring workplace

May 17, 2016 Laura McDaniel

After acquiring a local Portland real estate firm, JLL Portland sought to merge the companies together both physically and culturally. They wanted a professional, understated space in Portland’s desirable Pearl District that showcased the changing office environments clients most often request, and that represented their mixed, collaborative culture – as well as the culture and community that is unique to Portland and its booming tech scene. The new 11,000-square-foot “living lab” case study features a sprawling café, commuter bike racks, ample unassigned workstations as well as a 20-person boardroom with removable glass panels that help to create 2,000 square feet of event space for both internal and external use. Glass walls throughout the new office provide natural light, and photographs expertly framed and placed along the walls feature images of Portland and the eight bridges connecting the downtown area of the city. Employees at JLL Portland say they feel energized and inspired by the new space and the opportunities for collaboration.
