Portland’s most unique and
luxurious building for
elevated retirement living.

European-Inspired Design

Tucked into Portland’s bustling Richmond neighborhood, the 34,000 square foot space offers a unique approach to elevated retirement living. The first of its kind in the Portland area, the Greek-inspired residence offers a collection of ten opulent, ADA compliant apartments: single-level spaces on the second and third floors, ranging from 1,000 to 4,000 square feet. Amid tiered hilltops, the European-inspired landscaping includes terraces with trellises and jasmine plantings to serve as privacy screens. With custom terracotta-clad exteriors and contemporary interiors, the homes were designed to create a feeling of urban connectivity, balancing the togetherness of community with the independence of apartment living.

Inspired by a Trailblazing Woman

The Ellen Browning Building is named after Ellen Browning, a trailblazing woman and building owner Molly McCabe’s great aunt, three times removed. Ellen Browning was the only one of ten siblings to attend college; she studied science and mathematics at Knox College in Galesburg, Illinois, one of the few educational institutions that admitted women. After the Civil War, Ellen Browning and her brother, James E. Scripps, started a politically independent newspaper called The Detroit Evening News, which brought both esteem and fortune to the Browning Scripps family.

Located on the ground floor of the Ellen Browning Building, The Lobby is a public art space designed to encourage creativity, community, and connection. The exhibits will rotate every four months and will be curated by Sima Familant — private curator and art advisor — from building owner Molly McCabe’s personal art collection. The concept for The Lobby derived from Molly McCabe’s dedication to philanthropy and passion for ground-breaking contemporary art.

Shriek of Color

Here, in the preface of our current exhibition, “Shriek of Color,” we explore the power of color as a means to set context and become a tangible element of the narrative. The age-old question of whether form or color takes precedence in an artist’s work elicits complex responses. The choice of color can evoke distinct impressions, moods, content, and even environments. In “Shriek of Color,” the artists wield color for precisely these reasons. The results are at times abstract, at other times representational, and frequently, color assumes a life of its own, serving as a compelling character in the narrative.
