There is also a building like this in Vancouver, I personally didn't upload a photo but this is a very good one.

Scenicplaces, does the building widen on the other street (like the Flatiron building) or is it this narrow along its entire length?

Nice pic by the way ;)

jhk, Yes the building does widen toward the back. I can tell that from the satellite image. I never had a chance to go inside. Thanks for the comment. S

Ah yes, I see it on the satellite image too, didn't look there for some reason :)

This is the wedge-shaped H.H. Hay Building which was originally a drug store. There is also a replica of it in the "other" Portland - Portland, Oregon.

I took a similar image during a biz trip to Portland. I liked the archtectuire of this building but didn't have any particulars. Thank you for revealing its name. Like Greetings from California, Michael

There's now a Starbucks occupying the first floor and I believe an art gallery above... it's across the street from the new Westin Eastland.
