Project to 'breathe new life' into former Hillsboro bank (012423-copy)

An $8.25 million project transformed the former U.S. Bank building in downtown Hillsboro into a new food court. Ex Novo Brewing, one of the main businesses expected to move into the location this year, has instead scrapped these plans in favor of a new location in New Mexico. 

Ex Novo Brewing, the Portland-based craft beer maker that was supposed to open its first location in Hillsboro this year, has pulled out of a major development in downtown Hillsboro.

The development by Stonefly Investors LLC has turned the former U.S. Bank building on the corner of Second Avenue and Main Street into a food court that was meant to house Ex Novo and other establishments.



"As a lifelong Oregonian, I got into journalism to be one of the people asking tough questions. Reporters look out for the public’s interests and hold powerful people to account, which is something that’s invaluable for local communities. It’s why I support the mission to keep newsrooms locally controlled, because when the news loses that community focus it no longer represents the people who live there."
