Block 67 Logo

Making Downtown Hillsboro a more vibrant, livable place continues to be a top community priority. The redevelopment of the Block 67 will help further meet the community’s goals for Downtown Hillsboro as well as enhance the connection between Hillsboro’s Health and Education District and the historic Downtown.

The City of Hillsboro purchased the former Hank’s Thriftway property in Downtown Hillsboro in December of 2016. The purchase of the site – located between SE Washington and SE Baseline streets, and SE 6th and 7th avenues – set in motion the process to refine concepts and development options for the property. The City does not intend to retain ownership of the block in the long-term, rather to work with one or more private developers that are capable of supporting the City’s goals for Downtown. Purchasing the Hank’s property ensures the land is developed in line with the goals of the Downtown Framework Plan and the Downtown Urban Renewal Plan.  Both plans were prepared by the City with significant public input and identify mixed-use development projects that support regional transportation investments as a high priority for the Downtown area.
