For Mrs. Noble Building

Owner: For Mrs. Noble, LLC.

Architect: EMA Architecture

Originally developed in 1928 by Mary Nobel (believed to be one of the first female developers in Portland), the building had received little to no investment in its almost 90-year history. Complete MEP upgrades, repairs to structural deficiencies, and removal of toxic/hazardous materials were all a part of this project. In partnership with EMA Architecture, we hope this building will serve as a catalyst for preservation and investment in the community and continue to live on for generations to come.

The addition of an office kitchen and conversion of one large restroom to two make this office space versatile and welcoming to all.

Sloy, Dohl & Holst


This 1880s structure (listed on the Historic Resource Inventory of Portland) was originally built as a private residence. JHC was hired to undertake a major renovation of the interior not only to bring the rooms back to their former glory but to bring the building systems up to the current code and provide the tenant with modern commercial amenities. New electrical, HVAC, low voltage, and plumbing were run throughout the building by what can best be described as a “surgical” process to preserve as much of the existing building as possible. Existing historic interior elements were carefully repaired and preserved.
