Northeast Portland Oregon Real Estate
by Rob Levy
Welcome to Northeast Portland, one of the five sections, or districts, that emerged after the “great renumbering” of 1931. Northeast Portland covers everything north of Burnside Street and east of Williams Avenue. This portion of Portland is mostly residential though each of its many neighborhoods has their own collection of shops and restaurants to visit. As diverse as the city itself, Northeast Portland’s many neighborhoods each have an individuality all their own.
Alameda is a neighborhood in Northeast Portland that is both popular and prestigious with a strong sense of neighborhood pride. Established in 1859 on the land claim of William C. Bowering, you will find beautiful homes of all shapes and sizes nestled along tree-lined streets. Alameda Ridge has a remarkable view of Portland and the West Hills.
Laurelhurst neighborhood is a residential neighborhood in Northeast Portland with shopping and restaurants just a few blocks away. Most commercial businesses in Laurelhurst are at the intersection of 28th and East Burnside. When driving through Laurelhurst you will see its beautiful homes, well kept sidewalks and established trees. Make sure to visit Laurelhurst Park which was the first city park to be named in the National Register of Historic Places in 2001. You will know that you are entering or near Laurelhurst neighborhood when you see a large statue of Joan of Arc.
Shopping and Dining
Shoppers will find over 150 stores and an ice rink at the Lloyd Center Mall. The Lloyd Center Ice Rink also is used by the Portland Rose Society for the Annual Spring Rose Show. If the mall isn’t quite what you are looking for, then perhaps Mississippi Avenue or the Alberta Arts district is more to your liking.
Mississippi Avenue is known as one of the more diverse neighborhoods in Northeast Portland and has a wide variety of stores and restaurants. Most of the businesses are locally owned and operated.
The Alberta Arts district is considered funky and fun, where businesses function as art galleries with rotating artists on display. Artists displays are typically updated on the last Thursday of the month.
