Asian/Korean grocer H Mart has leased 21,124 square feet of ground-floor retail space at the Belmont Dairy in the Belmont District and Sunnyside Neighborhood. Belmont Dairy was formerly home to Zupan’s Market, which closed its doors in January 2017.

“The vacancy left this neighborhood in need of a new, fresh and affordable grocer. We believe H Mart is the perfect fit for all close-in neighborhoods of urban Portland,” said Urban Works broker Dan Bozich, who teamed with colleague Brian Greeley and Belmont Dairy owners to bring H Mart aboard. H Mart will become the retail anchor of the building, joining established businesses Eye Styles, Propaganda Hair Salon, Rendez Vous, and the Hobnob Grill.

Belmont Dairy is located at 3301 S.E. Belmont St. Built in 1929, the former dairy was transformed in 1996 into a mixed-use redevelopment with 85 apartments housed above retail storefronts. H Mart is a large Asian/Korean grocer with 75 locations nationwide and three locations in Oregon – one in Tigard and two in Beaverton.
