Big Pink: U.S. Bankcorp Tower

The US Bancorp Tower is the second tallest skyscraper in Portland, Oregon. It stands at 536 feet (163 m) with 43 floors (42 floors excluding the missing 13th floor). The unusual pinkish color earned the building the nickname "Big Pink", after an album by The Band.

Hi, Meead! Just checking in after a long absence to see how you are. I saw that you were in Seattle. Perhaps when I visit there next year you can come up again!

I'm enjoying seeing Portland through your eyes. Sorry I don't visit much, we're being monitored at work so I have to be more careful.

I seem to like the pink or copper colored buildings a lot more than the aqua ones. This looks nice with the sky. "The Band" goes back a long, long way... are you sure you're only in your twenties?

That's quite an impressive building. I'm surprised they made it pink.
