Ford Building

Parking Lots
All parking lots around the building are available on weekends and evenings without time limits. Get more information from the GFO staff.

Street Parking
Street parking directly adjacent to the building has various restrictions, so be sure to read the signs! Most side streets south and west of our location also have time restrictions. Many of these streets have Zone G parking. An all-day pass for these spaces may be purchased at the reception desk for $1. Side streets east of S.E. 11th and north of Division (including S.E. 12th) have few if any restrictions. Parking can typically be found there within three blocks of the GFO.

The lot behind the Ford building has one designated ADA spot. It has a two-hour limit. Portland has specific rules addressing parking on the street. They are copied below.
