The site originally was the home of Henry L. Pittock, Portland's major newspaper tycoon. Pittock was preparing to move into the Pittock Mansion and leased the entire block to a California investor with the requirement that a "worthy" building named after Pittock would be built on the site. [King, Bart: An Architectural Guidebook to Portland, pgs. 42-43. Gibbs Smith, 2001]
