This, six and a half acre campus in southest Portland has been owned by the Society of
Jesus (the Jesuits) for over a century and has been home to a number of uses over the years, most
recently a retreat center. This project included the demolition of most of the buildings on the
site to accomodate the new Jesuit Provincial Headquarters.
The site has been designated as a City of Portland Historical Resource
because of the gardens that exists on the north half of the site. The Jesuits desired to
preserve the garden, while building a new campus of four buildings including an office building,
two residential buildings and a chapel and meeting facility. The project includes extensive
landscape planting to blend the old with the new, with a central place in front of the chapel
anchored by a water feature.
