What’s that planned next to the 45th Parallel building in north Salem?

Place: 2195 Hyacinth St. NE

Description: Salem’s local showcase of eateries, salons, shops and offices in the 45th Parallel building could soon get an adjacent mixed-use project with two floors of multifamily housing and 13,650 square feet of ground-floor retail.

According to a site plan approved by the city in October, developers want to build a three-story building on a vacant lot next to 45th Parallel. The proposal detailed 34 residential units on the second and third floors, with the first floor reserved for commercial and retail use.

The new building would be located along 25th Avenue NE, near the intersection of Hyacinth Street NE – across the parking lot from the 45th Parallel building.

City documents list the project as owned by Back Line Properties, the company led by former Portland Timbers football player Nat Borchers, who turned to real estate investing and investment after retiring from professional football.

Borchers acquired 45th Parallel in 2022. The 70,000-square-foot building underwent a six-month renovation last year.

It is now home to dozens of companies, including CHOMP! Chocolate Factory, Just Us Girls Coffee & Wine, Little Angels Kid Salon, Momiji Sushi Restaurant and the newly added Xicha Brewing. The popular spot opened its second Salem location during the development last year, painting colorful murals and hosting events in the expanded space.
