Portland: Neighborhoods


Pearl District

Bordering Old Town to the northwest is the Pearl District. Formerly a warehouse area along the railroad yards, this is the fastest-growing part of Portland. Mid-rise residential lofts have sprouted on almost every block, and boutiques, outdoor retailers, galleries, and trendy restaurants line the streets. The Portland streetcar line passes through here on its way from Nob Hill to downtown and Portland State University, with stops at two new, ecologically themed city parks.
