As much as I love the homegrown Portland startup community, I’ve got an ever growing appreciation for the tech companies with regional offices growing here as well. I mean, they’re kind of like startups. But with more resources. And one of the latest additions is Fictiv.
Portland is lucky to have a ton of awesome coworking spaces to host our startups and creative types. But what if you’re in need of some temporary creative space for a photoshoot or offsite? That’s the question that Nashville-based AVVAY is working to solve. And they just launched their service in Portland.
While I don’t generally cover real estate sort of things, this one motivated me to post. Because it continues the long line of startups in Portland occupying the same space at the corner of NW 11th and NW Flanders in the Pearl.

I’ve often referred to Portland as the “regional office capital of the world,” given the prevalence of companies who have offices here—but not headquarters. So it’s always nice to when those regional offices expand. Which is just what Mozilla is doing with a growing Portland footprint. Read More
Okay, so that’s three things.
So what happens when you combine tech, green living, and housing? You get GreenRenter, a new resource that helps you search for your own green living (or office) space in the Portland area.
Currently serving Portland, Oregon, GreenRenter aims to show total inventory – all green rental property, regardless of whether it is currently available. So even though a property is listed here, it may not have space available right now.
What do they mean by green?
GreenRenter is very inclusive when it comes to “greenness.” We want to showcase the efforts of all owners who are trying to improve the sustainability of their properties, regardless of whether they’ve sought out certification or awards.
As long as the building includes at least one feature in any of the seven “green” areas (energy, water, building materials, operations, building surroundings, certifications and awards, other innovative green features) it can be listed with GreenRenter.
So, the next time you’re seeking a new humble abode or some new digs for your new gig, you might want to saunter over to GreenRenter to do the proper Portland thing by going green.
