The Annex is near the east head of the Broadway Bridge just past the Leftbank Project Building (at 240 N. Broadway). It is adjacent to the Moda Center in the heart of the Rose Quarter District and Oregon Convention Center Urban Renewal Area. The Annex sits at the intersection of four major bicycle routes, two MAX Light rail stops, one Streetcar stop and three TriMet bus stops. The N Weidler & Ross stop of the Streetcar is just one block from the Annex and serves the A & B loops, which connects the Central City’s east and west sides via the Pearl District, Broadway Bridge, Lloyd District, OMSI, Tilikum Crossing and Portland State University (PSU). Several MAX lines can be accessed at the Rose Quarter including the red, blue and green lines just south of the arena at the Rose Quarter Transit Center and the Interstate/Rose Quarter station located on the western side of the Rose Quarter campus, which serves riders on the yellow line. In addition, the area is a major city access point, including access to Interstates 5 and 84.
