Advocating for greater Portland's historic architecture and landscapes.
Greater Portland Landmarks advocates for the preservation and revitalization of greater Portland’s built environment. We encourage thoughtful rehabilitation of historic buildings, including modern additions and creative approaches to using old buildings in new ways. We support preservation of historic neighborhoods and downtowns, along with careful stewardship of historic landscapes. We promote the best in new architecture that is responsive to its context, incorporates high quality materials, and is of our own time. All of these elements contribute to Portland’s outstanding quality of place.
Our goal is to be part of the conversation early, to find mutually beneficial solutions, and to continue the tradition of architectural excellence that distinguishes greater Portland. To that end, we participate in a wide range of community review and legislative processes, develop policy statements on a broad range of issues, offer assistance and testimony as projects are being formulated, and convene interested parties to discuss developments and other initiatives relating to historic preservation and architecture.
