Portland Downtown and Pearl Districts are right in the center of town. Downtown is the commercial hub of Portland with a majority of the hotels, businesses, government buildings, and big tourist attractions. Portland State University campus resides in the Southern end of Downtown. There are many condos, both new and old, in this part of town and very few houses. The Pearl District is much like Downtown but more restaurant and shopping oriented. Residences here are newer or lofts converted from old warehouses. There are a number of tall apartment and condo buildings and some shorter, more charming places available. Both areas are some of the most expensive areas to live in Portland, with that comes convenience and luxury. Photo by M. O. Stevens

Condos in Portland range widely in quality and price. Depending on the area, some condos are at the forefront of luxury. Penthouses on the waterfront with views of the city and forest park and within close proximity of top restaurants, shopping, and transportation. Others may be far away, a bit run down, and in a less than reputable neighborhood. But whatever type of condominium in Portland you may be looking for, it will be easy to find here.

Homes in the Pearl District and Downtown are hard to come by. These parts of town are full of people living and working, visiting and shopping. Most of what is available wil be condominiums. However, there are some houses still in the corners of the Pearl District and western parts of Downtown. The hills are a much better location for homes as they are in close proximity to Downtown, The Pearl, and NW 23rd Avenue. Photo by werewombat.

Portland, like many other big cities, is blessed with a river going straight through it. The Willamette is a large river flowing north where it meets up with the Columbia before heading west along the Washington and Oregon border, into the Pacific Ocean. Bridges over the Willamette are abundant and there are many waterfront properties along the river and on Lake Oswego to the South. The best waterfront areas are just south of Downtown and Lake Oswego. Most of the North is taken up by ports, shipping companies, and industrial districts. There are, however, some amazing condos overlooking the river and the city. Photo by Gary Halvorson.
