Creative / Retail Flex Space

We re-claim, we re-purpose, we re-develop. That’s Portland.

There are many creative ways to utilize or redevelop a space – or an entire city block. At Urban Works, we’ve helped breweries, food and product manufacturers, creative offices and everything in between find their ideal retail flex space.

About Ancient Heritage Dairy and Weatherly Creamery

In the early 1920’s, George W. Weatherly was already a well known and pioneering manufacturer and philanthropist in Portland. As he was expanding his wholesale dairy business, he moved into this building on SE 7th and Main St. to manufacture ice cream, butter and cheese. Ancient Heritage, Portland’s first urban creamery in decades expanded into a retail flex space of the same building.

Housed in the Weatherly Creamery Building, along with Alma Chocolates and Renata Restaurant, the Weatherly Creamery building has built out a retail front that opens up to show their commercial bakery at work.
