The Services


So you’ve heard that Portland has turned into some sort of food mecca?

We are enthusiasts of all things food. Fast and healthy, sweet and hearty, or gourmet and aromatic. Whether it’s your first time opening a neighborhood cafe or a national chain looking for the best corner in the central city, we have vast experience to facilitate that journey. Urban Works specializes in restaurant transactions and negotiates more restaurant leases than any other brokerage group in Portland.

Breakside Brewpub Case Study

Now Open at Slabtown Marketplace

About Breakside Brewery

This highly regarded local brewery opened its first location in Woodlawn in 2010. With an eye on expansion, Breakside enlisted Urban Works to help find their production brewery and taproom in Milwaukie in early 2013 and their third location in NW Portland's Slabtown District in March, 2017. Breakside's awards and accomplishments are too many to list, but a few of their most notable accolades include the following: General
  • Brewery of the Year ­- Oregon Beer Awards 2017
  • Brewery of the Year ­- Best of Craft Beer Awards 2017
  • Brewery of the Year ­- Oregon Beer Awards 2015
Breakside IPA
  • “The World’s 50 Best Beers” – MSN
  • “The Best Beer in Oregon” – The Oregonian 2015
The new brewpub in Slabtown Marketplace serves "elevated pub fare with local ingredients" and make its own lineup of beers, some of which are bottled in small runs.

Inspired by the Slabtown space

To much fanfare, Breakside opened their third location early 2017 in the 5,000 SF space on the corner of Northwest 22nd and Raleigh in Slabtown Marketplace. Initially searching for a large, unique, and creative beer hall format, Breakside saw the Slabtown warehouse redevelopment and their vision grew. The space incorporates an outdoor patio, rooftop deck, and a test brewing facility for their brewers to experiment while their patrons sample away. It's safe to say that Breakside Brewery is the hub of Slabtown's social scene.
