Condominiums can offer the best experience of Portland. They’re often right in the heartbeat of the city, close enough to walk downtown or bike to all kinds of activities, from festivals to farmers’ markets. You can go to a museum, eat at a restaurant, or hang out by the waterfront without leaving your neighborhood!
Condos are also easy to take care of, especially compared to single-family homes. While single-family homes can be charming, they often require more time and dedication than condos. You have to maintain a lot by yourself, from mowing the lawn to keeping the roof, plumbing, and heating system in good condition.
If you want to avoid these hassles and truly relax when you’re home, a condo might be your perfect way of living. Condos offer a high level of luxury at an affordable price. Everything is close by, and with no big yard or house to maintain, you’ll have more time to enjoy it all!
Even better, condos are typically more eco-friendly than single-family homes. They take up less space and conserve heat much better. And, since they’re already at the center of the action, they can make walking and cycling more convenient than driving.
In other words, if you want a luxurious yet eco-friendly home with an excellent location, take a look at the following condominiums. They’re all beautiful and located at the center of Portland life. Check out our Portland community page to see more great homes and condos for sale.

Want to live in the artistic Pearl District? This contemporary studio could make that dream a reality. With high ceilings, deeded parking, and large southern-facing windows, you’d have a gorgeous year-round home or part-time pied-a-terre for exploring one of the trendiest neighborhoods in the city. You can dine at neighborhood restaurants or have a drink with friends just down the street. Then, afterward, you can enjoy beautiful views of the river from your building’s 7th-floor deck.
Willamette River Condo
This lovely condo is also just minutes away from the Pearl. Situated on the Willamette River, you’d get unobstructed views of the harbor straight from your living room and bedroom. The huge windows also let in tons of natural light. You can step outside for a morning run along the river walkway, then sit on the balcony afterwards and savor the sun reflecting on the water.
Close to Everything
This courtyard-level condo is a bikers’ heaven. There are no stairs from the condo to the Waterfront Park bike path. You can head out the French doors of the unit, cycle along a courtyard path onto Mill St. Circle, and then turn onto the bike path for two miles of scenic river views. The condo is spacious and comfortable, too. It has Italian tile floors, a wood-burning fireplace, two underground parking spaces, and a large master bedroom. You’d be close to the marina, shops, and restaurants, and a short bike ride from everything else!
