Curb Appeal Vol. 5: Portland Neighborhood Spotlight – Alameda

By Aryne + Dulcinea, July 27, 2018


Gravelly Hill Road was established by the Bowering Family in 1859. On land claimed by the family, a small community of individuals began to develop on top the large gravel bar formation which spans six miles to Rocky Butte. Fifty years after the Bowering family’s occupation of the area, the Alameda Land Company would develop the exclusionary Alameda Park subdivision, which would later become incorporated into the City of Portland. Today, Portland’s Alameda neighborhood spans  NE Prescott Street to Knott Street, positioned between the Sabin and Beaumont-Wilshire neighborhoods.


The real estate market in Portland’s Alameda neighborhood has been experiencing consistent growth for half a decade, with the median price increasing by 39.8% over during that period. According to a comprehensive market study by Portland Monthly, Alameda is Portland’s sixth-most expensive neighborhood, with homes averaging $726,243. Featuring bungalow, Tudor and Queen Anne-style architecture, Alameda offers a diverse selection of premiere homes, and values are anticipated to increase by an additional 34% over the next five years.


Take a stroll through Portland’s Alameda neighborhood and you’ll quickly understand what makes this housing market so competitive. Aptly earning its name from the Spanish word alameda, meaning a promenade shaded with trees or public walkway, this neighborhood is home to one of Portland’s premiere urban walks. Perched high above the city, a walk through Portland’s Alameda neighborhood reveals Northeast Portland’s best views. With a bike score of 92 over 47 restaurants, bars and coffee shops, the neighborhood has plenty to offer its more than 5,000 residents.
