Ella is located in the South Waterfront District of Portland, less than one mile from the downtown core.

Over the last decade, the South Waterfront has blossomed into one of Portland’s most desirable live/work communities, with over $3 billion in new development. The area is home to the Oregon Health and Science University, Oregon’s largest employer. OHSU is currently in the second phase of their 20-year plan, which is largely based on expanding their South Waterfront Campus with over one million square feet under construction. The most recent additions to the South Waterfront include the Center for Health and Healing, Rood Family Pavilion and Knight Cancer Institute Research Center.

The project achieved LEED Gold certification.
