Annex


ON THE AVENUE: THE SHACKELFORD CO.

Jul 22, 2019

On Annex, the multi-story downtown Harborview office building housing the land-developing Shackelford Co. (run by Donovan Shackelford and his aide-de-camp Helen Kidwell) is based upon Portland's Wells Fargo Building (1907, Benjamin Wistar Morris III).

Also known as the Porter Building and located at 309 SW 6th Avenue, the steel-framed 12-story Wells Fargo Building was, at the time of its completion, considered Portland's first skyscraper.

Such a perch overlooking downtown, the river, and Southeast Harborview on the opposite bank, is a fitting lair for Donovan, Helen, and office intrigue.

The Shackelford Co. office is introduced in Season 2, Episode 5 ("Chilton Trash").
