For 36 years, Meyer Memorial Trust has leased office space in downtown Portland, beginning at 1515 Market Square, where the Fred Meyer Charitable Trust first opened its doors in 1982. In 2004, Meyer moved to a space in the Pearl District — then an area filled mostly with industrial lots and warehouses — where it has remained for more than 15 years. In Spring 2018, Meyer announced a plan to move from its leased office space to a 25,000-square-foot plot of land at the southwest corner of North Tillamook Street and North Vancouver Avenue, just northeast of the Broadway Bridge. Meyer's new home will house office space for about 50 employees and feature a library, educational garden and convening space for all-hands meeting and collaborating with community partners.
