Pine Street Market

URM Adaptive Reuse / Food Hall

The Pine Street Market is an adaptive reuse of an existing underutilized historic building in Portland’s downtown core. Siteworks’ participation from vision concept of a very entrepreneurial business plan to the strategic design process and construction phase is a great example of how we work hand in hand to find success for our clients and the community through a collaborative project delivery process. This restoration has been celebrated locally and nationally as a great economic, community, and design success. Its identity as Portland’s First Food Hall was read about Worldwide and has acted as an energizer for its neighborhood and more positive healthy activity. Siteworks provides high quality and affordable opportunities while creating positive street activity in and around the structure. Pine Street Market represents a thoughtful development model that helps local restaurant owner operators succeed into the future of a growing Portland, where increased leasing and labor costs challenge high quality food offerings that the Portland Culture is known for.

“By creating a downtown cultural experience, we have offered tourism and office workers a taste of Portland and a low-cost ratio to income for the owner operators. The collaboration of the food hall operations and smaller foot print for each restauranteur creates a synergy of low costs and high volume that allows for our operators to succeed financially.”

Pine Street Market, which opened in the spring of 2016, is located in downtown Portland in the historic Carriage & Baggage Building and features nine of Portland's best chefs and purveyors, in a casual, open layout.

Built in 1886, the Carriage & Baggage Building was originally used as a livery and horse-drawn carriage storage facility until the early 1900s. With horse stalls on the second floor and four massive tanks on the roof that provided water to wash the stalls, the building was essentially a horse and carriage parking garage.

When the automobile replaced the horse-drawn carriage, the building was used as storage and retail for Mallory Logging and Contractors Supplies for decades. From 1969 to 1981, the building was home to the original Portland’s Old Spaghetti Factory. Since the early 80’s, the ground floor housed a string of infamous Portland nightclubs.

Listed on the National Register of Historic places, the Carriage & Baggage building is one of the few examples of a Portland livery. The massive Doug Fir timber frame structure has been retrofitted to modern seismic requirements and has retained the original skylight at the roof.
