About Downtown Portland
Downtown Portland is like a micro-New York City, only with friendly Portland quirkiness. Art, culture, renowned local restaurants, grandiose hotel bars, food carts, breweries with live music, high-end shopping and department stores, dotted with parks and waterfront views, are all just steps away when you live here.
Your Downtown Portland Condominium
Wake up to the sun through the window of your building, and watch the sun come up over the West Hills and the Willamette River, and reflect in other skyscraper windows nearby. Read the paper in your lobby with a few neighbors while watching the news and arranging for your car to be brought around by the valet that evening. After saying Good Morning to your doorkeeper, head outside in your three-piece tailored suit to meet an important client over organic fair-trade pour-over coffee at the shop down the block. With features like large windows, rooftop terraces, balconies, hardwood flooring, stainless steel appliances, chandeliers, ceiling fans, and on-site services, your downtown condominium embodies luxury and elegance mixed with the rich history of these historic downtown high-rises.
Having Fun Downtown for Professionals
Professionals of all ages will adore living in downtown Portland. The calm sanctuary of living high above the ground floor meshes well with how much there is to when you walk outside. High-end department stores, the partly underground Pioneer Place mall with designer shops such as Coach and Louis Vuitton, the Park Blocks, the Portland Art Museum, Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall, Central Library, and Oregon Ballet Theater all reside downtown within walking distance. Find lunch in a gourmet food cart and eat outside at Pioneer Courthouse Square (known as Portland’s living room), or dine on the terrace of Departure at the top of the Nines Building. Portland favorites such as Jake’s Seafood House, Portland City Grill at the 30th floor of the U.S. Bank Tower, the largest independently-owned bookstore in the West, Powell’s Bookstore, Tom McCall Waterfront Park, and Veritable Quandary on the waterfront are also a moment away from your doorstep. During every season, festivals are held on a regular basis at Pioneer Courthouse Square, Waterfront Park, and other places. The PSU park blocks host Portland’s largest farmers market Spring through Fall, and closer to the river along the MAX line is the weekly outdoor arts and crafts bazaar, Saturday Market.
Out and About from your Downtown Condo
Parking for downtown residents is usually secured in an underground lot or a private access garage. Fortunately, you won’t need your car to get around the neighborhood. The Portland Streetcar, as well as the MAX trains going North-South and East-West all run through downtown, and the Tri-Met bus depot can take you from downtown to all corners of the Metro area. Taxis are also plentiful in the area, and for the athletic, covered bike parking and designated lanes for bicyclists are also part of what makes this urban center so commuter-friendly.
Calling Downtown Portland Home
Living downtown Portland is living in the center of the vibrant, thriving historic cultural center of the city, and is Portland’s answer to those who are thrilled about the bustling pace of urban life.
