The Portland Business Tribune‘s Joseph Gallivan interviewed ten local business leaders on their biggest accomplishments of 2016, including Harsch President Jordan D. Schnitzer.

Schnitzer names the continued repositioning of Parkside Business Center, acquired by Harsch in 2015, as a highlight of the year. “We have increased occupancy from 83 percent to 96 percent and repositioned a number of tenants for their long-term growth,” he explains.

Looking forward to the year ahead, he says, “Our local economic outlook for 2017 is very strong. There should be good absorption in all product types in the Portland metropolitan area.” Upcoming Harsch developments in Portland include projects near the Reserve Building and Providence Park downtown, as well as a creative office building at 151 SE Alder St. in the Central Eastside Industrial District.

His biggest achievement of the year? Andy Warhol Prints: From the Collections of Jordan D. Schnitzer and His Family Foundation at the Portland Art Museum, which has attracted over 85,000 people and 20,000 school children, filling up every docent tour the museum had available,” he tells Gallivan.
