Portland’s South Waterfront is characterized by luxury and beauty. Built on brownfield land, which means land that was previously used for industrial purposes, the South Waterfront stretches along the Willamette River adjacent to the downtown area. One of Portland’s many examples of urban renewal, it is marked by a cluster of high-rises that hold both commercial and residential units. In addition to many gorgeous condos, the area also boasts the Oregon Health and Sciences University Center for Health & Healing and Mirabella Tower, a community devoted entirely to the retired. The area is connected to the rest of Portland via the aerial tram, which heads up to OHSU, as well as the streetcar, and is accessible by car on several roads. In addition to well-appointed living spaces and commercial suites, the area also offers lovely walking paths along tree-lined streets. Several ground-floor business establishments give the South Waterfront a community fee. If you’re a dog-lover, you will appreciate the neighborhood’s dog park, while commuters will enjoy the relative abundance of free parking.
