The Pearl District | NW Condo Living

The Pearl District, a former warehouse and industrial area near downtown Portland, Oregon; has transformed itself to be the arguably hottest urban neighborhood in America right now. Old warehouses have been remodeled to be luxurious loft buildings and the Pearl District neighborhood is packed with art galleries, upscale business and world-class dining.

HISTORY

A local art gallery owner coined the name Pearl District more than 10 years ago to suggest that its industrial buildings were like crusty oysters, and that the galleries and artists' lofts within were like pearls. As local business people were looking to label the growing area—the "warehouse district" or the "brewery district" were two suggestions—a writer for Alaska Airlines picked up the Pearl District name, and it stuck. Since then the area has undergone significant development and is now full of condos and lofts.

CULTURE & AMENITIES

The Pearl District neighborhood is unmatched in the Northwest when it comes to access to restaurants, parks, entertainment, theatre and public transportation. Just recently the Gerding Theater opened its doors and is now serving Broadway theatre to its Pearl District neighbors.

The Portland Streetcar runs through the Pearl District and transports passengers from the downtown Portland to Northwest Portland. Art galleries, boutiques, and restaurants abound, and there are also a number of small clubs and bars. The Pearl District is also home to a number of local artists and art institutions.

Area art galleries sponsor artists' receptions on the first Thursday of every month. The area is home to several Portland icons, including Powell's City of Books and the former Weinhard Brewery, which is now the foundation of the re-developed Brewery Blocks. Free Wireless Internet is available throughout the Pearl District, which is provided by Personal Telco.

Jamison Square is built around a fountain which simulates a tidal pool that is periodically filled by artificial waterfalls. Tanner Springs Park is a recreated natural area featuring wetlands, walking trail, and creek.
