Curb Appeal Vol. 4: Portland Neighborhood Spotlight – King

By Aryne + Dulcinea, June 14, 2018


Portland’s King Neighborhood serves as a prime example of the complicated social history that permeates Oregon. Once a designated district for redlining, professional organizations would penalize REALTORS® for selling homes to African-Americans outside of the district. Consequently, King has served as a cultural hub for Portland’s black community for many decades and still maintains a distinct population of socially-minded and multi-cultural residents.



Portland’s King Neighborhood has demonstrated steady growth in the real estate market for nearly a decade. The area features an eclectic collections of home styles, ranging from craftsman to modern varieties. The diverse home composition adds to King’s charm, which serves as a major drawer for home buyers. This area projected to experience rapid market growth in the coming years, and Portland Monthly anticipates a 5-year median price change of 51.1%. Home to over 6,500 people, 50% of King residents own their homes.



This is our stopping ground! We love living and working in this neighborhood. Located along a prominent throughway, King provides direct access to several of Portland’s prominent eateries and neighboring districts. Its centrally-located nature makes it one of the best neighborhoods to commute from, earning a Walk Score of 90 and a bike score of 98. Of course, residents don’t need to commute far to have most of their needs met. Portland’s King Neighborhood has over 125 restaurants, and individuals can walk to an average of 7 restaurants, bars and coffee shops within 5 minutes.
