Ten years ago, the vertical white lights on the former First National Bank tower were turned off after the building closed. Now the 55-year-old Elm Street landmark is being transformed as part of a $450 million redevelopment project.

Renamed The National, the 52-story high-rise is scheduled to open by the end of this year. The lights have already been turned back on.
This is one of the state’s largest adaptive reuse projects, and DDI will stake its claim on a bottom floor space that will be visible from the street.

Oregon State athletic director Scott Barnes said earlier this week that the price tag to remodel Reser Stadium is now $140 million. That’s down 20 percent from a projected cost of $175 million at the outset of the project.
