This high-end Portland clothing retailer had been in their old location for decades, helping to cement their reputation as a Portland institution. When they had to move to a new location a few blocks away, they wanted that established “been there forever” feel to be there when they arrived. Eleek was contracted to design and manufacture exterior decorative sconces that brought the building a unique creative flair as well as an historical patina. These bronze sconces are installed all around the front and side of the Mercantile over the sidewalk. The design is appropriated from historical scupper designs.
There is a food cart lot one block to the west and O'Bryant Square Park is one block to the north. Grab some lunch and eat it outside (weather permitting).
