As population surges in Portland proper, many of the city’s hipper residents are fanning out for the suburban enclaves. But don’t look for these tastemakers in Beaverton or Tigard, these trendy homeowners are finding new opportunities in areas of Gresham, Troutdale, and Milwaukee. These neighborhoods may not be beckoning big development just yet, but with this wave trendsetting residents, it won’t be long until these hot neighborhoods are sketch comedy show-level trendy.
This affordable enclave lies right against the Portland/Gresham border and is replete with stunning mid-century modern ranches and split-levels with retro sensibilities and huge potential for transformation. The neighborhood’s accessibility is another cause for its apparent attractiveness; it’s a stone’s throw away from the ultra-cool Portland neighborhood of Montavilla.
Southeast Portland stops just short of the charming suburb of Milwaukee, which is equal parts hometown appeal and metropolitan sensibilities. The neighborhood of Milwaukee Heights is situated just south of Sellwood, and is close enough to Portland proper to offer a casual commute.
This up and coming Gresham neighborhood is removed enough for its residents to feel comfortably distanced from the city, but still close enough to easily bike into Downtown.
