Ocean Gate Plaza is owned by Ed Gardner, a West End Portland resident. Ed purchased 511 Congress St in April of 2014. The property is a historical property of note in the heart of Portland’s Historic District and consists of 130,000 square feet of Class A office and retail space with onsite parking.
The nine-story office tower was rebranded Ocean Gate Plaza and upgrades to the interior and exterior has brought the property a fresh and edgy new look, while staying true to its 1970’s look and theme.
“511 Congress Street is a familiar building to me; one that I have been doing business in for years” said Ed Gardner. “I have always been in awe of the views and natural light that the building offers to its occupants, but more impressed with the inspiration that the tenants realize from this more modern office complex. This one has it all; from its outside plaza to its large and airy lobby and onsite parking. Rebranding this property to the Ocean Gate Plaza will surely breathe new life into this pinnacle of Portland's skyline.”
A long-time supporter of the arts and local artists, Mr. Gardner has commissioned an impressive art installation in the plaza at 511, “The Portland Rattle” by Maine artist, Charlie Hewitt.
Most importantly, Ocean Gate Plaza has a collection of some of the finest businesses in the state. Home to nearly 20 companies and 350 professionals, Ocean Gate Plaza is a gathering of the most innovative and hardworking executives in Portland. Our tenants include experts in finance, the law, civil engineering, and insurance, as well as a yoga studio, a tea house, spa, and restaurant.
