Theodore Burney Wilcox (1856-1918), who made a fortune in banking, commissioned the Portland firm of Whidden and Lewis, to design this office property. Its scale, structure and styling closely resemble the Stevens Building also by Whidden and Lewis.

This building, like almost all tall buildings built on the West Coast after the San Francisco Earthquake of 1906, had a steel frame.
