Northwest Portland’s empty Gasco Gothic gets noticed:
In the shadow of the St. Johns Bridge, sandwiched between Highway 30 and the west bank of the Willamette River, stands a weathered gray building that looks like it’s straight out of “Batman.”
“It looks very Gothic, unusual, almost out of place,” Steven Sechrist, NW Natural public affairs manager, says of the utility-owned building.
Surrounded by industrial operations, the edifice has stood idle for more than four decades. It was once a bustling administrative headquarters for a nearby gas manufacturing plant.
