This one-of-a-kind office park celebrates rain the Portland way. A series of giant umbrellas showcases detailed bronze-work from a local artist while incorporating stormwater treatment and disposal in elegant fashion.

Rainwater fountain is 100% driven by gravity—no pumps.
Nearly a half acre of roof runoff is collected from Oregon’s first symphonic roof drain system.
During rain events, the fountain spills into a bioswale for stormwater treatment and infiltration.
Swale overflow goes into an underground infiltration facility for second chance chance infiltration and annually eliminates hundreds of thousands of gallons of stormwater from entering the combined sewer.
The rainwater fountain is the focal point of a large open space that is an amenity for employees and the neighborhood.
