The Langley Street Loo is located on Langley Street near Bastion Square. It was installed in November 2011, replacing the temporary urinal provided to the public on weekend nights. The Langley Street Loo is a permanent facility, designed to be more cost effective over the long term and provide greater accessibility to all users 24 hours a day. It is cleaned four times a day and as needed. The ready-made stainless steel facility features a unisex toilet, exterior hand washing station and graffiti proof coating. Portland has installed several of these washrooms in their downtown over the past two years. The success of the washrooms has been attributed to their unique and open design.
