With its rusticated sandstone base, over-scaled arches at street level, and stone carvings, the eight-story building is a strong example of Romanesque Revival architecture. It's made completely from materials found in Oregon. Completed in 1891, it is named after Frank Dekum (1823–94), a German immigrant who opened Portland's first candy shop. Construction cost $300,000 in 1892 dollars. During construction, masons reportedly consumed beer instead of the usual coffee.
From the 1990s until 2000, the Dekum Building was occupied by Wieden+Kennedy, made famous with Nike's Just Do It campaign.
