PORTLAND, Ore., June 19, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- ScanlanKemperBard (SKB) has announced a joint venture with ReCap Real Estate Investment on behalf of Reinsurance Group of America (RGA), in which they acquired the Leftbank property, located in the highly desirable Eastside submarket of Portland, Oregon.  

SKB and Reinsurance Group of America (RGA) acquire Leftbank, a four-story creative office in the heart of Portland's Eastside submarket

The Leftbank property has a total of 60,209 rentable square-feet and consists of a four-story building, adjacent parking lot and vacant developable parcel of land. With its exposed wood ceilings and beams, original masonry walls, and panoramic views of the west side of Portland, the four-story building provides an engaging space that has become ideal and sought after for creative and tech tenants. In addition to its architectural appeal, the property is conveniently located adjacent to a Portland Streetcar stop and a short walk to four MAX light rail lines, and is only two blocks from Portland's Moda Center, home of the Portland Trail Blazers.

Leftbank was acquired off-market and adds to SKB's growing creative office portfolio. The property features tenants spanning creative industries such as marketing, advertising, digital media, engineering and architecture.

According to SKB Vice President of Acquisitions, Justin La Tempa, "We are excited to acquire another asset in Portland's thriving Eastside market. Leftbank's central proximity and its adjacency to public transportation and Portland's largest event venues, makes for an advantageous opportunity."
