pdxthenandnow:

Hotel Cornelius then (built in 1908) and now. 
It’s currently in disrepair and has been labeled unsafe by the city of Portland, while its striking mansard roof goes virtually unnoticed today to passersby. 
According to Wikipedia, the 

ground-floor wood storefront was once a “Ladies Reception Hall” and an featured an opulent basement cafe. Ornate wood paneling and trim was included throughout the building.

In 2008, there was talk to retrofit it into a boutique hotel. 
It now sits in sad disrepair.
