Stumptown moving to new Portland site

Venerable and Stumptown Coffee sign a 10-year lease for 37,000 square foot space in the Central Eastside District. Construction will begin soon and is scheduled for completion this summer.

Upcoming Project: Fire Station No. 7

Our next redevelopment project will involve returning this 1927 firehouse back to its former glory.  The property is located in Portland’s Central Eastside Industrial District and is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.  Watch for progress and photo updates to come!
