Notes
Survey number HABS OR-130
Significance: The Hotel Lenox is representative of the work of one of Portland's pioneer architects, Emil Schacht. In the early twentieth century, Schacht was very active in the design of many of Portland's residential, commercial, and civic buildings. In his design for the Hotel Lenox, Schacht combined Renaissance, Neo-Classical and Modern detail into a style known as "Period" architecture. The Hotel is one of a few of Schacht's buildings that still stands. Built in 1906, the building remains in essentially its original condition on its original site. Although the interior has been stripped, the exterior appears much the same as it did upon its completion in 1907. The Hotel was built for E.C. Jorgensen, a prosperous businessman who was active in Portland's early civic affairs. The Jorgensen family owned the building continuously until it was sold to the city in 1979. The neighborhood which surrounds the three block park from Madison Street to Salmon Street between Third and Fourth has undergone a great deal of change in recent years. The area includes some of Portland's oldest buildings, such as the Portland Landmark, City Hall, and one of the first city auditorium buildings in addition to some of the City's newest buildings such as the Federal Building and a new parking structure. As one of the original buildings facing the park, the Hotel Lenox is in keeping with the turn of the century architecture which once dominated the area.
