Sixth at Yamhill’s core location provides access to light rail, buses, parking garages and is surrounded by luxury boutique hotels and restaurants. During its ownership, Swift completed a major lobby remodel, repositioned floors three through 11 to creative shell, established a common indoor-outdoor tenant patio on the fourth floor, added basement bike parking and secured the high-end boutique Water Ave Coffee Shop as a retail amenity.
