PORTLAND Despite its dingy past, Old Town could be entering a new era. The catalyst: a $37 million, 142,000-square-foot renovation of the historic White Stag block, which will house University of Oregon law, architecture and journalism satellite programs beginning this spring and boost the workday population in the area by an estimated 700 people.
“This project lit the spark that will start the process,” said Craig Kelly, vice president of Portland-based Venerable Group, developer and manager of the rehabilitated property that combined three buildings originally built between 1883 and 1907.
Along with White Stag, Mercy Corps has purchased the Skidmore Fountain Building and adjoining lot to relocate its global headquarters. While the Port of Portland — opting to consolidate its offices near the airport — recently sold its Old Town office building to Washington Real Estate Holdings of Seattle, it will continue leasing the building until 2010, when its new office is expected to be complete.
Washington Real Estate Holdings plans to use the ground floor as retail space and is currently on the hunt for tenants for the rest of the building.

Every once in a while we receive a letter in the (fictional) mailbag that is tough to describe and quite compelling. This week, Isabel, the new HR manager at LabCo (and someone who is new to HR), wants to know whether she may fire the owner’s son for having an Oregon medical marijuana card. In passing, Isabel also makes a number of alarming admissions about her motivation. Here is Isabel’s nerve-racking question and our response to it.

This Roundtable will cover numerous issues under the employer "shared responsibility" rules of the Affordable Care Act, including how to track the "full-time" status of variable-hour employees, temporary or seasonal employees, and employees who experience a change in status or a break in service. Additionally, we will provide a brief overview of Code sections 6055 and 6056, which require most mid-sized and large employers to submit their first information reports to the IRS in early 2016 regarding the health insurance coverage being offered to employees. We invite you to participate in an interactive discussion on how to prepare for the future impact of the shared responsibility rules on your operations and finances.
