Adaptive Re-use in Produce Row
For well over a hundred years the East Side industrial district was a hub for wholesale food distribution throughout the Pacific Northwest. In recent years, this area of abandoned warehouses and crumbling brick structures has been transformed into a magnet for forward-looking entrepreneurs and an important job generating center on the East Side.
Join us for a view of Portland’s past meeting its future in the “Central Eastside Industrial District” in this Produce Row tour. We’ll begin the tour at the Architectural Heritage Center, a fine example of rehab and re-purposing of one of the oldest commercial buildings on the East Side. (see photo above)

Optional social time with food/beverage after the tour.
