Curb Appeal Vol. 6: Portland’s Boise-Eliot Neighborhood Spotlight

By Aryne + Dulcinea, September 17, 2018


Spanning some of Northeast Portland’s most historic areas, Portland’s Boise-Eliot neighborhood has undergone a significant shift within the past two decades. Emerging from the center of the former City of Albina, the area was formally incorporated into the city proper in 1887. The historic face of the district has since been modernized to include some of the city’s most popular commercial stretches.


The real estate market in Portland’s Boise-Eliot neighborhood reflects the area’s character, featuring a combination of old Victorian and Portland-style homes as well as modern lofts. Currently, homes in the area sell for an average of $758,726, with nearly 40 listings currently available. According to Portland Monthly’smost recent real estate market study, Portland’s Boise-Eliot neighborhood is estimated to experience a growth in average home prices of over 60% within the next five years.


Now unrecognizable from its neglected past as residential community, much of Boise-Eliot now represents the creative and entrepreneurial energy frequently affiliated with the City of Portland. Here, a cultural hub has blossomed from its industrial roots, creating a vibrant community enjoyed by locals and tourists alike. The density of amenities exceeds that of many of the city’s areas, with residents enjoying an average of 20 restaurants, bars and coffee shops in within a five-minute walk.
