Central Eastside Industrial District

The Central Eastside Industrial District is a 681-acre district encompassing property south of I-84 to Powell and the river to SE 12th. An emerging international hotspot for significant innovation, sustainable industries, and entrepreneurship, it is also one of the most unique districts in the country, offering manufacturing jobs in the city core while encouraging a diversity of other users.

Portland’s Central Eastside, once ruled by industry, has gone through a significant revitalization, as seen by the creative adaptation and reuse of the old industrial structures. It has become a hotspot for innovation and sustainable industries and is one of the most unique districts offering manufacturing jobs in the city core amongst the hottest eateries, breweries, retailers, and coffee roasters.

Within the Central Eastside micro-market of Portland’s core, the effects of COVID-19 have been felt more by the leasing market. Office vacancy rates have increased to 9.8%, compared to 5.8% in the prior period. The Industrial market has been on fire for nearly a decade now with many old industrial buildings having been converted to retail or creative office opportunities. As a result, sale prices have steadily increased. Currently, small industrial buildings in the Central Eastside are selling at an increase of about 7% from the prior period. Lack of new inventory, coupled with low interest rates and attractive lending options, have allowed sale prices to continue to grow.

With businesses returning to in-person employment, and restaurants and bars opening for regular hours of operation, the hustle and bustle of this micro-market is already seeing see an uptick in activity. There are excellent on-market opportunities for companies looking to locate in one of Portland’s most desirable and trendiest areas.
