For the Ecotrust building and the Redd

What’s included with my event rental?

When you book your event at the Redd or the Ecotrust building, you can expect a dedicated event professional to work with you throughout the planning and logistics process, from contracting to execution. On the day of your event, a venue coordinator will be on site for the full duration of your contracted time to ensure all building and set-up related questions are answered. We do recommend hiring a professional coordinator or planner to manage vendors, decor/installations, and run of show, and we’re happy to provide recommendations for these services. In addition to your logistics and venue coordinators, a full suite of rental furniture is included with your rental. You can find this information on the web page for each event space.

When can I tour the venues? Are they open to the public?

Tour availability is subject to the event schedule and can be made by appointment Monday through Saturday. Because of our robust event calendar, our spaces are not open to the public.

Does Ecotrust Events provide dishware, linens, etc.?

The approved caterer of your choice will rent items such as these from our exclusive approved event rental companies, the Party Place and Bridgwood Event Rentals.

Who is responsible for the setup and breakdown?

The approved caterer of your choice will manage the setup and breakdown of tables and chairs, as well as trash and recycling removal. Alternative arrangements can be made on a case-by-case basis.

Is parking included?

The Redd on Salmon has a lot with 48 spots that are available to rent for exclusive parking. If not rented exclusively, it is shared parking amongst the tenants and employees of the Redd campus. We highly encourage cycling, ride-sharing, or public transportation otherwise, as public parking is limited in Inner Southeast Portland. Ecotrust has a visitor’s lot that is first-come, first-serve and shared with the building. The north side has a 2-hour limit until 5pm on weekdays. After 5pm and on weekends, all 36 spots are available without restriction. The former US Post Office building on 9th Avenue now hosts a City Center Parking lot with over 100 pay-to-park spots.

Do you give discounts or sponsorships to nonprofits?

We are able to offer discounted rates to nonprofits in most cases. Please inquire to find out if your event qualifies. We are able to donate event space by way of the Community Grant Program, which is a competitive application process.
