About The Pearl
Formerly home to warehouses, light industry and railroad yards, Portland’s trendy Pearl District (christened by local gallery owner Thomas Augustine) is now best known for its art galleries, boutique businesses and upscale residences.
Just north of downtown between West Burnside and NW Broadway, “The Pearl” features high-rise condominiums and warehouse-to-loft conversions and is home to Powell’s City of Books, Deschutes and Bridgeport Brewpubs, and some of Portland’s best restaurants, like Oba!, Andina, Irving Street Kitchen, Blue Hour, and Park Kitchen.
Pearl residents enjoy proximity to Union Station, watching the city’s leading professional theater company (Portland Center Stage) perform at the Gerding Theater at the Armory, listening to jazz at one of the “Top 100” jazz clubs in the country (Jimmy Maks) and settling in to watch their favorite indie and foreign films with a cocktail and gourmet cuisine at nearby, Living Room Theaters.
Replete with amenities and exemplifying the tenets of new urbanism, the neighborhood’s design ensures residents find everything they need within the boundaries of their neighborhood. Portland’s street car and Tri-Met MAX lines run right through the heart of “the Pearl” which boasts a focus on sustainability, mixed-use, walkability, and diversity, showcasing LEED certified buildings (like Portland’s Eco-Trust) and several small intentional parks including Jamison Square and Tanner Springs Park (complete with wetlands, walking trail, and creek).
