The Portland Plaza is a condominium skyscraper in downtown Portland, Oregon, United States. It stands at a height of 272 feet (83 m) and contains 25 floors. The Portland Plaza was designed by the firm of DMJM and was completed in 1973.

Enjoying a location almost directly west of the Keller Auditorium and the Ira Keller Fountain, Portland Plaza creates a late mid-20th century modernist feel to the area. Along with the Keller Fountain, the building has been featured on an album cover of the band Shades of Christ,[1] and appeared as a futuristic building in the PBS film version of Ursula K. Le Guin's The Lathe of Heaven.[2]
