The Portland Telegram Building is a historic building in Portland, Oregon. It formerly served as the headquarters of "The Portland Telegram", a now defunct local newspaper founded by Henry L. Pittock. The red-bricked and terra-cotta structure culminates in a colonial-style clock tower. [King, Bart: An Architectural Guidebook to Portland, pgs. 53-54 (photo). Gibbs Smith, 2001]

A major renovation took place in the 1990's, converting the building into residential lofts. A renovation in 2003 added two floors of underground parking, office space upstairs, and a penthouse (also office space) below the clock tower. The Telegram Building was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1994. [cite web
