Canby Civic Block

A new retail opportunity
in Downtown Canby

The Canby Civic Block offers something new for a walkable neighborhood served by a brand-new 35,000 SF library, gourmet grocer, and independent cinema:

  • Four modern retail spaces with floor-to ceiling windows

  • Two historic adaptive reuse buildings ready for the region's next great restaurant or brewpub

Designed by Portland-based SERA Architects, each retail space in the Canby Civic Block is positioned to draw foot traffic, build upon the strengths of Canby’s vibrant town center, and attract customers from the 69 housing units above.

Downtown Canby has plenty to offer both residents and visitors, including a street festivals, a movie theater, weekly events at the fair grounds, and locally-owned shops and restaurants. Canby’s identity as a complete community has been bolstered by the construction of a new 35,000 square-foot library and city hall and over $2 million in public investment to add new landscaping and public art downtown, improve street safety, and make walking and biking safer and more comfortable.

Portland’s Hottest ‘Hoods
“For a slice of the quieter life, consider Canby. Near the confluence of the Willamette and Molalla Rivers, residents of this burg of 17,000 tend to hold on to their homes. Which might just have something to do with boasting the metro area’s lowest crime rate, highest suburban Walk Score, and a stable population that saw a comparatively cheer-worthy $3K bump in median household income last year.”
