The Luxury Bread Building (1403 SE Stark)

The rich history of the Luxury Bread Building harkens back to 1929, when it was originally run as a family bakery called the Luxury Bakery Company.

Completely rebuilt from the ground up, the building features full seismic upgrades, and state-of-the-art mechanical systems, including full solar power; Urban Works Broker Rob Moneyhan quotes, “The Luxury Bread Building is easily one of the best adaptive reuse projects on the Eastside. ” With one remaining vacancy, now is the time to jump on this opportunity to set up shop in this beautiful redevelopment!




Vintage guitar shop where customers can buy, sell and trade vintage guitars and amps, or attend a performance while enjoying a beer, wine or cider.

“We’re going to be your favorite new vintage guitar shop, bar, and performance space. Music schedule details coming soon!”

So far, Strum has already hosted multiple musicians/bands in their space – make sure to check out Strum’s Facebook Page for upcoming events!

Strum is open in the Luxury Bread Building.

Local chocolate company Cocanú, known for their unconventional chocolate flavors, has recently rebranded under the name Cloudforest.

This new space allows for a chocolate factory and Cloudforest’s first retail chocolate shop.

A recent Portland Monthly article on Cloudforest quotes, “The bars are sold on shelves at the 13-seat café—10 flavors for now, each a little adventure, from coffee-blazing Bruno to Moonwalk, which is wrapped in a glistening white space-suit package and shot through with Pop Rocks. ”

Cloudforest is open in the Luxury Bread Building.
