Portland’s Best Neighborhoods: South Waterfront

Stretched out along on the west bank of the Willamette River, Portland’s sophisticated South Waterfront community is a carefully curated result of the Portland Development Commission’s North Macadam Urban Renewal District. Downtown adjacent, South Waterfront boasts riverfront views and urban amenities like convenient public transportation (via the TriMet MAX light rail, Portland Streetcar, and aerial tram), cutting edge design and urban green building as well as exclusive shopping, public art, idyllic parks and tree-lined walking paths.

A newer development, South Waterfront features finely-appointed living spaces and commercial suites in an inspiring, nature-friendly urban environment and is home to a community garden, friendly dog park and even a bustling farmer’s market every Thursday evening (from 2pm-7pm June through October) at Elizabeth Caruthers’ Park. South Waterfront’s Community Relations website is active and works to cultivate community ties, hosting events that bring residents together like the annual SOLVE It for Earth Day Spring Cleanup and their popular summer outdoor concert and movie series.
