Gregory Lofts, Portland, OregonPhoto by Lynda Jeffers
I happened to pass by this building twice tonight but first I was on the streetcar and then it was dark out, so no picture. This is a new (well, 14-year-old) building.
From Flickr:

The Gregory is the art deco queen of the Pearl District. Built in 2000 with 133 living spaces in a 12-story brick and concrete building. The Gregory’s curved windows and unique art deco style make it a signature building in the Pearl. The lofts at the Gregory are more opulent than industrial. Large terraces are on floors 5, 11 and 12. Secure parking is above ground on levels 2 to 4. The Portland Streetcar runs on both sides of the building. Units range in size from 750 to 3,350 feet.

Charles F. Berg Building, Portland, OregonPhoto by Wendy Darling
On the way to find breakfast and coffee this morning, passed by exactly the building I was looking for!
From Wikipedia:

The Charles F. Berg Building, also the Dolph Building is an art-deco building in downtown Portland, Oregon. It is one of the few examples of commercial use of art-deco in Portland.
The structure was built in 1902, and remodeled into a women’s clothing store with its signature facade in 1930. Charles F. Berg (1871–1932), the building’s namesake, was the owner of the store once located inside. At the time, Charles F. Berg was an upscale store, and featured ornate and lavish interior fixtures such as a Tiffany-designed elevator. The facade includes inlays of 14 Karat gold.
Currently, the building is used as offices, with a retail arcade on the ground floor. The Berg building was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1983.
