The Fox Tower is a 27 story high rise Class A office building with ground floor retail space and below ground parking. It opened in 2001, after having been developed over the course of the previous 3 years. The Fox Tower got its name from the Fox Theatre which occupied the block immediately preceding the tower. The original Fox Theatre was opened in 1911 to host live theater performances, and was later converted in 1929 to show films. Designed by Robert Thompson of TVA Architects, the building's shape is unique in that it combines a curved plane with the more traditional right angles associated with office buildings. This is partly an architectural design element, meant to set the building apart from its peers and draw the eye. However, it also serves as a way to prevent more of the building's shadow from falling on Pioneer Square to its NW, a public space also known as Portland's Living Room. The height of the building was also limited to 372' in order to protect the view corridor of Mt Hood to the east from another of Portland's prized public spaces, the Rose Garden in Washington Park, in Portland's West Hills.

When it was first constructed, the below ground parking structure underneath Fox Tower was the deepest in the City at more than 60' below grade. The garage was expanded below Director Park in 2008 and now has more than 1100 total spaces.

As of August 30, 2012, the Fox Tower is officially LEED Gold. This designation means that the operations and maintenance of the Fox Tower are conducted in such a manner so as to ensure a significant reduction of its environmental impact. Everything from reduced energy and water consumption to the use of low VOC products and chemicals to the use of recycled content products wherever possible.

In the time since becoming a tenant in the Fox Tower, we have been impressed with the manner that the TMT team has responded to any issues that we may have run into. We see this from the front line team to the management team. They have been a partner to us in our efforts to continually grow our restaurant business.
