The SMART Tower or “Sustainable Modern Art Tower”, is a proposed building in downtown Portland, Oregon, United States. The building would stand at a height of 650 feet (200 m), making it, by far, the tallest building in the city.[1] The tower design includes an observation deck, restaurant, ballroom and parking garage with 600 spaces.[2] Designed by Eric Cugnart of MulvannyG2 Architecture, the plans also have more than 250 wind turbines to generate power, saving the city roughly one million dollars a year in energy.[1][2] If approved, the tower will be developed by Derek Hanna and be built in Portland's waterfront park. Originally planned for the old Portland Visitors Information Center at Tom McCall Waterfront Park, the city chose an alternate plan for redevelopment of that location.[1]
