The biggest name on Wall Street bought into the Portland real estate market this year, but the deal didn’t have staying power. The Blackstone Group — whose March blockbuster IPO filing has finance junkies salivating — bought out Equity Office Partners in February for a stunning $39.2 billion. It was the largest private-equity buyout on record (we wonder how long that will hold up) and it suddenly made Blackstone the largest single owner of Portland-area office space with 4.1 million square feet of cubicle acreage.
With alarming speed Blackstone’s real-estate pros in New York slapped a $1 billion price tag on the 40 Portland-area properites — which includes pretty much all of Kruse Way in Lake Oswego, arguably the market’s hottest address — and found a buyer in San Francisco-based Shorenstein Properties. The sale closed in late March.

As a general rule, the more people with autism can be provided with visual cues, the better they will be able to understand and manage their environment. It’s a lesson Tom Keating learned well. The 61-year-old Eugene grant writer spent 31 years taking care of his autistic brother James, and in the late 1980s developed a spreadsheet that created a series of nonsense characters that grew or shrank depending on how much money James had in his account.
