The Pearl District is in NW Portland and could be considered the livliest area of Portland. A pedestrian's dream, the residents can walk to work, eat at a variety of restaurants, go to Bar and Yoga classes, walk or bike along the river and jump on a streetar that loops through downtown Portland.
The Pearl District was formerly occupied by warehouses, light industry and railroad classification yards and is now noted for art galleries, restaurants, upscale businesses and retail with high rise residences and lofts.This urban oasis is not home to single family homes, rather a combination of high and low rise condominiums and townhomes.
Neighborhood parks make living in the Pearl appealing to young and older residents. The vibe in the Pearl is exciting and new. Whether you live in the Pearl or just visiting, the proximity of many outdoor and civic venues is enticing.
