Telegraph building

Anyone know the location of the "old telegraph building"? That's what Eric called the place that had the practice space where he recorded Nation and Furr. I'm curious bc when I went to Portland I tried to find it to take a photo - I wondered if it was the one at SW Park & SW Oak, but I'm still not sure.

I remembered reading that it also became a dance studio, which led me to this article that mentions a bit of BT history:

Looks like it was also called the Pacific States Telephone and Telegraph Building, located on SE Ankeny. This article: ( gives an address of 532 SE Ankenny.

Hope this helps!  Any Portlanders please feel free to correct me.

Thanks so much for investigating this. I looked up that address myself and found more info to back you up: this says Revolver Studios was located in that building and Blitzen Trapper recorded albums in one of their practice rooms.

Hey! The building has been restored and is an ad agency now:

Thanks for the info Michael!
I took this picture when I was in the city on Friday for the concert. Though the neighborhood must have looked much different in 2008.
