Described as Jacobean, the Ambassador Apartments is unique in Portland for substituting Idaho sandstone instead of the glazed terra-cotta common in the facades and trim of structures dating from the 1920s.
It is a nine-story H-shaped building with about 6,000 square feet (560 m2) per floor.
The building has been the residence of many prominent business and professional people, including lumber company owner Louis Gerlinger Sr. during 1929-1940 and William Simon U'Ren during 1927-1949. Edith Green maintained an office on the ground floor.
