The Next Hot Neighborhoods in Portland

by | May 12, 2008 | How to Guides, Uncategorized

I am often asked the question, “What are the next hot neighborhoods in Portland.” I like answering this question because I feel I have a good take on what makes a great neighborhood. Also, as a Broker that handles commercial real estate, I know many of the developers in town and where they are planning new projects.

What makes a great neighborhood? In one word: Lifestyle = Parks, Transit, Restaurants, Bars, Entertainment

North Portland: Kenton
I love this place. Close it I-5 and Interstate MAX line. Denver has new cafes and shops openning up and Kenton Park is great all summer.

NE Portland: Hollywood
When you’re competing with Alameda and Irvington it’s hard to stand out but for buyers looking to walk their neighborhood this is the place. Close to Sandy which is changing to a more upscale corridor and more affordable than it’s surrounding neighborhoods.

SE Portland: Clinton
Two blocks south of the rapidly changed Division St. you can walk to all Division has to offer with a much quieter feel. Home of one of the best new sushi places [Bara], a theater, and great bars. Centered around 26th Ave to 21st Ave.

SW Portland: Multnomah Village
This is not a secret but I think this area will continue to build as the quaint small town center of SW Portland.

NW Portland: Downtown North of NW Thurman St.
Just above the Pearl District this area has a ton of new development slated for the next few years. A great place to buy an old warehouse and make some real lofts or try to find a rare old house in amongst the industrial neighbors.
