Pittock Block

The Pittock Block is a building in downtown Portland, Oregon. Since 1987, it has been on the National Register of Historic Places.

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.

The Pittock is home to the Pittock Internet Exchange (NWAX), Portland's Internet exchange point.
