Susie Knows Portland, OR Hollywood District

Househappy —  August 31, 2015 — Leave a comment

The Portland Hollywood District is no “Hollywood” but it is glamorous in its own way. The only real connection to anything Hollywood in the district is the historic theater, ran by a non-profit and popular for showing art house films. The heart of the district is Sandy Blvd. This street has changed and grown a lot over the years, improving in all sorts of ways. Historically it hasn’t had a lot of charm, but in recent years there are tons of new shops and restaurants that pull all different types of crowds in. The Max line helps bring a variety of people through the neighborhood as well.

The weekly Farmers Market has been a favorite to many for a few years now. Located in the parking lot of Grocery Outlet as well as the surrounding streets, it is a vibrant market for the community! A brand new, New Seasons grocery store has opened  in the neighborhood along with Whole Foods. The large 24 hour Fitness is also located right in the heart of this district across from the Trader Joes, a building you can’t miss.

Real Estate is strong in this neighborhood due to its accessibility to public transportation (max line has a stop) the airport, and freeways heading all directions. Schools are strong and walkability to the library, grocery stores and good restaurants is very convenient. Hollywood /Grant Park has a variety of architecture in well-established single family homes. Prices range from 400,000 up to as high as 900,000 for the fully restored Craftsman the neighborhood is known for. Recently more apartment and condo style living have been built. Hollywood District is not a neighborhood to leave off  your list if you want great access to downtown, the airport, and a walkable path to your everyday needs as well as strong public schools!!
