Pearl District Neighborhood Real Estate and Homes for Sale
The Pearl District is a world-renowned icon of urban renaissance, straddling gentrification and revitalization with delicate balance via the incorporation of New Urbanism in its evolution. The Pearl is a young neighborhood, its most recent incarnation established in the early 1990s. Its modern persona is heavily influenced by the tenets of New Urbanism, which prizes mixed-use, walkability, diversity, human scale and conservation. Well-designed urban neighborhoods should operate as networks that increase social capital for their residents. The influence of these ideas on the development of the Pearl is apparent in nearly every block. At the street-level, buildings display visual variety, the neighborhood boasts small parks and small schools, several buildings have LEED status (meaning they are designed to use fewer resources) and residents benefit from a variety of food, entertainment, civic involvement, transportation, employment and home options.
The Pearl is a small, downtown neighborhood. It is located in the northwest quadrant of Portland, OR nestled between Downtown, the Willamette River and the Northwest neighborhood, encompassing approximately 100 city blocks and covering 245 acres. Its boundaries are formed by W Burnside Street on the south and NW Broadway to the east. The Fremont Bridge frames the north end of the Pearl, becoming the Interstate 405 Freeway that cradles its western boundary. The softer boundaries of the neighborhood are NW 9th Ave to the east and Northrup to the north. Development is not as dense beyond those streets, therefore few people venture any further east or north.
