Flop sweat shining

Since it moved into the heavily subsidized Mark Edlen palace in the Pearl District, Vestas has done nothing but cut its Portland workforce. Since the first of the year, the payroll here has been reduced from 400 workers to 300. The city was talking about a 200-job increase once the local taxpayers handed out the millions. Instead, we've gotten a 100-job decrease, and counting. But gosh, it shore is a purty buildin' that there Mark fella has, ain't it?

Back in 2010, the Meier & Frank building was billed as the "North American Headquarters."

Today, the building is nothing more than "sales and service operations."

When the remains of Vestas are bought out, it will likely be closed.
