About North Portland
North Portland, also known as NoPo by locals, is an eclectic mix of residential, commercial and industrial areas. This makes this section of Portland one of the most affordable options when it comes to real estate. North Portland is connected to the industrial area of Northwest Portland by the St. Johns Bridge. The St. John’s Bridge, a 2,067 ft long suspension bridge completed in 1931, is a staple piece of Portland. You can find images of this place all over the internet.
North Portland is home to PIR (Portland International Raceway), the University of Portland, and the main shipping cargo facilities along the Willamette and Columbia Rivers.
North Portland Real Estate offers a mix of both old and new properties with craftsman homes, ranches, bungalow styles and intermixed row houses. Small cottages, on smaller lots with little updating are perfect for first time home buyers, investors or people looking to buy rentals.
Neighborhoods in North Portland span from the east side of town to the west and include King, Vernon, Concordia, Piedmont, Cully, Kenton, St. Johns, Portsmouth, overlook, Arbor Lodge and University Park.
North Portland Homes for Sale
During World War II, a planned development named Vanport was constructed to the north of this section between the city limits and the Columbia River. It grew to be the second largest city in Oregon, but was wiped out by a disastrous flood in 1948. Columbia Villa, another wartime housing project in the Portsmouth Neighborhood, is being rebuilt; the renewed community opened in 2005, is known as New Columbia and offers public housing, rental housing, and single family home ownership units. Since 2004, a light rail line runs along Interstate Avenue, which parallels I-5, stopping short of crossing the Columbia River.
