About Ladd’s Addition
Listed as a “Top 10 Great Neighborhood,” by The American Planning Association in 2009, Ladd’s Addition (found within the Hosford-Abernethy neighborhood) is a cozy world unto itself.
Influenced by Pierre (Peter) Charles L’Enfant’s design of Washington D.C., former Portland mayor William S. Ladd plotted the layout of this historic district (on the National Register of Historic Places) in a similar fashion—eschewing a traditional grid for diagonal avenues that zigzag around miniature rose test gardens with a larger garden in the center.
One of the oldest planned residential developments in the Western United States, Ladd’s Addition is conveniently located between SE Hawthorne and SE Division where culture and food are merely a short bike ride or walk away.
Palio Espresso and Dessert House, at the very center of Ladd’s Addition, is the perfect place to study or get a cup of coffee on a first date—HINT: They specialize in Mexican mochas.
