Pearl District Real Estate Market

Portland's Pearl District covers 120 city blocks north of downtown, bound by West Burnside Street to the south, the Willamette River to the north, NW Broadway to the east, and Interstate 405 to the west. This neighborhood is beloved for its walkability, smooth access to public transit, community green spaces, and overall urban feel.

The Pearl District is the definition of urban living that also includes historic charm. The homes in the Pearl District consist of upscale lofts, high-rise condos, and townhomes. Old warehouses were renovated and converted into beautiful lofts, and the demand for high-rise condominiums was made obvious with the opening of the Cosmopolitan on the Park building. New development and converted warehouses are available in abundance. Popular high-rise condos here include The Encore, The Metropolian, Waterfront Pearl, and more.

Most of these condos and townhomes are luxury units with fully upgraded appliances, rooftop pools, electric car charging stations, and other amenities included in the COA. Several buildings have panoramic views of Downtown Portland, the Willamette River, and Mt. Hood in the distance. One feature of properties here is that parking spots are often included, which is crucial in an urban area like the Pearl District, which has limited street parking.

With a median listing price usually in the mid-to-high $500s, the Pearl District is affordable compared to some other Portland neighborhoods. However, the price per square foot is typically more expensive, since the majority of the Pearl District's real estate is made up of luxury condos instead of single-family houses.

The Pearl District Lifestyle

Just a mile from downtown, the Pearl District is lively, vibrant, fun, and highly walkable—everything you dream about when you want to move to an urban area! Some of the city's finest eating and shopping spots are here, and with everything you need within walking distance, many residents in the Pearl don't bother owning a car. The streets are in a grid and easy to navigate, with numbered streets spanning north to south and named streets running east to west alphabetically.

This area was once completely commercial, and many of today's hip restaurants and bars, quirky boutiques, and luxury condos are repurposed warehouses or other industrial structures. The rough, drab-colored industrial buildings were said to resemble the shell of an oyster, yet inside are some of Portland's best artists and small businesses. This fact coined the name The Pearl District, a reference to the unique treasures hidden inside.

Pearl District Community Amenities

As one of Portland's most well-known trendy neighborhoods, the Pearl District is home to art galleries, restaurants, unique antique shops, and upscale shopping. This neighborhood has become a highly desirable place to live due to the convenience of location and upscale homes.

The constant bustling of people is what will be found in Pearl District. Whether you are exploring the unique stores, taking in the best nightlife in Portland, or enjoying a cup of coffee at one of the many coffee shops, there is something for everyone here.

Pearl District Shopping

Locally owned and operated businesses are not uncommon in Pearl District, so supporting locals with patronage is a huge bonus to living and shopping or dining literally where you live.

As a former commercial site, many of the Pearl District's shops are made from retired warehouses and industrial buildings, housing the funky boutiques and eclectic antique stores that Portland is best known for. Several grocery stores like Safeway and Whole Foods Market are directly in the community and walkable from the residential buildings. Also in the area is Powell's City of Books, a Pearl District shopping highlight, the world's largest independent bookstore, and a Portland icon. This four-story bookstore stretches a whole city block on W. Burnside.

Pearl District Restaurants, Breweries & Bars

One thing residents love about living in Portland's Pearl District is the wide array of top-notch restaurants and bars. Hotlips Pizza brings Portlanders from all over with the laidback, friendly patio atmosphere and endless pizza options, including vegan. Other than the tasty pizza, the pesto breadsticks and the chocolate chip cookies keep Hotlips popular. Taco lovers flock to Carlita, a quality taco joint known for taking Mexican classics like chips and salsa and adding unique seasonings and flavors.

The Teardrop Lounge is more than just a trendy cocktail spot that uses only high-quality ingredients- it's a bar that gives new meaning to the term 'mixology.' Locals know Teardrop is the best place in the Pearl District to try a unique drink from true mixologists.

Pearl District Outdoor Activities

Portland's Pearl District was once wetlands fed by streams from the hills in southwest Portland. Reminders of those days are present in the trails, parks, and green spaces that residents enjoy today. A great place to experience the former wetlands is Tanner Springs Park, a peaceful acre in the center of the community, complete with an art wall. Nearby, Jamison Square has a stepped stone wall with flowing water and a boardwalk. The Fields Park, in the Hoyt Street Yards portion of the Pearl, is larger at 3.2 miles and a favorite of pet owners thanks to its size.

Things to Do Near the Pearl District

Being located in downtown Portland has its perks. One of those perks is that there are a ton of things to do just outside of the Pearl District itself.

Much friendlier than it sounds, The Hawthorne Asylum is a food pod full of options from Myanmar, South Africa, and other hard-to-find cuisines. Portlanders take a break from city life at Lan Su Chinese Garden, an urban escape within Old Town Chinatown. Lan Su has rare plants native to China, decorative stonework, and bridges that make for great photo spots and a tea shop. The Portland Art Museum, once a public library, has an indoor cultural collection plus an outdoor sculpture garden.

Pearl District Services

The TriMet connects the Pearl to nearly every neighborhood and community in the city, and the Portland Streetcar also services this area. Portland Streetcar routes in the Pearl include the A Loop, B Loop, and North South Line. The MAX Blue and Red Lines have stations to the south and east, and the Green, Yellow, and Orange Lines run through the neighboring Old Town neighborhood.

Gyms like LA Fitness and 24-Hour Fitness, and Lloyd Athletic Club are easy to get to. NW 23rd is an unofficial hospital district with several medical facilities. Galleries like White Space and Augen are some of the best places to experience art in the Pearl District. Nearby event spaces include Urban Studio and Everette West.

Pearl District Neighborhood Association

The Pearl District Neighborhood Association (PDNA) consists of volunteers who live or work in the neighborhood and are dedicated to improving their community.

One important function that the PDNA provides is foot patrol, which acts as the eyes and ears of the neighborhood. The association works directly with the Portland Police and Park Rangers to address all safety concerns. PDNA also has efforts that focus on graffiti removal and litter pickup. As one of Portland's most proactive community advocates, the Pearl District Neighborhood Association has successfully lobbied for traffic lights at Couch, Everett, and Glisan streets and partnered with the TriMet and the Portland Streetcar to design better transit access.

Employers Near the Pearl District

Living in Pearl District, many residents can walk to work; however, if walking isn't an option, being in the city, other forms of transportation are easily accessible. Public transportation includes the Portland Streetcar, light rail MAX train, or TriMet bus service are excellent options.

As an urban and highly walkable area, the Pearl District has some of the best cafes and coffee shops for remote work. Coworking spaces in and around the Pearl include CENTRL Office Pearl, WeWork, and Industrious. The tech industry continues to grow in Portland, along with the large concentration of apparel companies, including Nike, Under Amour, and Keen.

  • The Pearl District has a high concentration of luxury lofts and high-rise condos.
  • The Pearl's central location gives it easy access to every form of public transportation in Portland.
