Moving to Portland | Top Reasons to Move to Portland

Moving to Portland?

What a GREAT place to call home.  Are you planning to move to Portland?

I’ve helped relocation buyers for over 15 years.  And in the year 1990 I relocated to Portland OR from the Los Angeles area with my, then, 3-year old son. For us, it was a great move to Portland and I wouldn’t change a thing.

Since my move to Portland in 1990, I’ve gotten so used to living here and I LOVE IT!

BREAKING NEWSJune 2015 

America’s 6th Fastest Growing States.  Oregon is one of the fastest growing economies

  • GDP growth: 4.7 percent
  • Real 2012 GDP: $186.228 billion (25th highest)
  • Population change: +0.87 percent (16th highest). In 2014, Oregon was also the top destination in the country for people to move to, according to a study by United Van Lines

Oregon is on the fastest-growing states list for a reason! It became the nation’s sixth best economy in 2014 with economic growth of 3.6%, according to the latest government data. Oregon’s GDP is nearly three times that of the U.S. economy.

A manufacturing resurgence is propelling Oregon forward. HavingNike (NKE)’s headquarters and Intel (INTC, Tech30)’s production unit in its backyard has certainly helped. The state exports everything from computer processors to wheat.

The Beaver state has consistently added jobs since the financial crises, especially in major industries like healthcare, manufacturing, services and hospitality. The state’s unemployment rate — 5.2% — is below the national average

This can be attributed to a reverse off-shoring trend that is occurring partially as a result of defects, delays and theft in overseas supply chain locations.

Here are my top 10 reasons to move to Portland in no particular order:

  1. Mt. Hood year round skiing The mountain has six ski areas: Timberline, Mount Hood Meadows, Ski Bowl, Cooper Spur, Snow Bunny, and Summit.
  2. Downtown Portland the charm of the city is apparent.
  3. Silicon Forest Surrounding Portland are many major high-tech employers. Many employees move to Portland due to job relocation. With over 25 major high-tech companies including Intel, Tektronics, IBM, Mentor Graphics, Nike (world headquarters and several campuses within Washington County) and the countless smaller and/or independent companies that thrive in the Silicon Forest. There is no doubt that the drawing card to many folks considering a move to Portland is the lush, green Silicon Forest.Intel Corporation, the world’s leading manufacturer of semiconductors (an essential component of most consumer electronics), is Oregon’s top private employer with a work force of approximately 18,500 in 2011.
  4. Suburbs Many people moving to Portland want to live in the ‘burbs. No problem there. Suburban Portland neighborhoods include: Northeast Portland | North Portland | Southeast Portland | Happy Valley| Westside Suburbs | Beaverton | Orenco Station | Hillsboro | Lake Oswego | Northwest Portland | Southwest Suburbs | Sherwood | Tigard | Tualatin | West Linn | Wilsonville |
  5. Schools — great public and private educational institutions throughout Portland Metro. From early education with Montessori Schools for the darling pre-kindergarten group all the way up to post doctoral and advanced degrees at OHSU (Oregon Health and Sciences University).
  6. Urban Trends . . . one Word:  PORTLANDIA.  Yup, put a BIRD ON IT!  It’s exactly like that!
  7. Weather Want to know what the weather in Portland is like here you go. YES it rains here and as everyone says, “It keeps us lush and green.” But we have the four distinct seasons:
    • Summers in Portland are warm, sunny and rather dry, with August, the warmest month, averaging 79.7 °F .  We have a larger day-night variation than in winter, nightfall is 9:00PM during the peak of summer.   Many people moving to Portland are amazed that A/C units aren’t found in every home.
    • Winters in Portland are normally mild, but very moist.  January averaging 39.9 °F. Cold snaps are short-lived, and snowfall occurs no more than a few times per year, although the city has been known to see major snow and ice storms because of the cold air outflow from the Columbia River Gorge, and Arctic blasts from Alaska.
    • Springs in Portland can bring rather unpredictable weather, resulting from warm spells, to thunderstorms rolling off the Cascade Range. The rainfall averages an equivalent 37.5 inch per year in downtown Portland spread over 155 days a year.
    • Fall in Portland is Spring in reverse. October being a month of Indian Summers, then heading into November, the weather cools.
  8. No Sales Tax yes that’s correct. The State of Oregon does not have a sales tax. If you purchase something for $4.95 and hand a $5.00 bill to the clerk, you will get a Nickelback! 😉
  9. Affordable Real Estate ~ the Portland Metro area has some very affordable prices on housing. Compared to our West Coast neighbors of San Diego, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Seattle and parts in between, for a metropolitan real estate market we’re very reasonable.
  10. Green Living

Oregon is also nurturing more clean tech green construction, ocean energy and nanotechnology. The Oregon Nanoscience and Microtechnologies Institute has helped 22 nanotech start-ups raise $96 million. The Oregon Wave Energy Trust aims to make the state a clean energy leader, eventually generating 500 megawatts of electricity and thousands of jobs with technology to harness the ocean’s wave power. ~ By The Kiplinger Washington Letter

The Major Employers in Portland

Most people who are moving to Portland relocate here due to job transfers or other employment opportunities. Here is a few of the major employers in the area, in no particular order:

The region added 88,000 jobs between 2002 and 2007, and is projected to add an additional 76,000 between 2009-2013.

Portland OR “America’s Best Downtowns” According to Forbes

America’s Best Downtown Portland Oregon

Forbes Magazine recently gave the nod to Downtown Portland Oregon as being one of America’s Best Downtowns.  I could not agree any more! Downtown Portland is truly a wonderful place.

When it comes to cities, Portland, Ore., is a unique urban playground of high-end culture, green living and DIY arts scenes. But for a taste of Portland’s best, natives point to the city’s downtown area. There’s independent live theater, beautiful parks, the largest independent and used bookstore in the country and some of the best doughnut shops on the Pacific Coast (not to mention a plethora of Portland’s celebrated food trucks). ~~ John Giuffo, Contributor Forbes

Normally, I can’t stand the “lists” of the Best Places to Live, or the Best Places to Retire.  There’s typically a 10 top and that makes me wonder what about all the other GREAT PLACES in America to live?

Lifestyles Across America is a great portal for all things best, but I digress.

Portland, Ore.

Although Portland is well known as a city that is friendly to bicyclists, it also has a walkable and attractive downtown that offers a wide variety of cultural options and commercial options. There’s a vibrant and active arts scene, great food on both the high and low ends, the country’s best selection of locally-sourced craft beers, an attractive and popular riverside park, and Powell’s, the largest and one of the best independent bookstores in the country. And while you can, with some effort walk around much of Portland’s relatively small downtowns, its best to mike (sic) like a local and rent a bike“ you’ll get around more effectively, see more of the area, and get a little exercise  all good things in the greenest of America’s 50 Greenest Cities ~~ Forbes

America’s Best Downtown Portland OR

Portland, Ore has one of the best Downtowns in America.  I know, because I live here and I love Downtown Portland!  I’ve always felt Portland’s Downtown was clean, safe, charming, quaint and very reminiscent of some European city centers such as Amsterdam.

Here’s a few topics left off the list of America’s Best Downtowns:

The Alphabet Blocks in Portland

Where are the Alphabet Blocks in Portland?

Located in Portland’s NW section, the Alphabet Blocks in Portland are a group of streets beginning north of Burnside and continue heading north, alphabetically.

The Portland Alphabet Blocks is an ubur-trendy area known for restaurants, boutiques, antique shops, bookstores, second hand thrifts, pubs, pubs and more pubs.

 

The Alphabet Historic District, an area zoned for historic preservation running roughly from NW 24th Ave. to NW 2nd Ave., and from NW Vaughn St. to W Burnside St. It is named for the alphabetical progression of street names in the area and in 2000 was added to the National Register of Historic Places – Wikipedia

The Alphabet Blocks located in the NW District of Portland comprises:

  • NW 23rd Ave is dubbed “Trendy-Third”, this major shopping street is lined with swanky clothing boutiques and other upscale retail, mixed with cafes and restaurants. This area is also known as Uptown (particularly its southern end near W Burnside St.) and includes Nob Hill (centered on NW 23rd Ave. and NW Lovejoy St.).
  • NW 21st Ave. The neighborhood’s other main commercial district is a dining and entertainment destination, with popular restaurants, an independent film theater, and numerous bars, pubs, and nightclubs.

How Did Portland Alphabet Blocks Come to Be?

Maybe . . . and I’m only taking a guess . . . for the ease of locating  an address.

Let’s take an address, any address 2105 NW Hoyt, for example.  The Portland City Planners of yore developed a nice block/address identifying system.

  • Burnside St. is a great divider.  Burnside dissects Portland north and south.
  • The Willamette River is the other great divider. It dissects Portland east and west.

“B” is for Beginning the Alphabet Blocks

Portland Alphabet Blocks begins with “B” for “Burnside

I think Alder might be the missing “A” block, but it doesn’t run the length of Portland as Burnside St.

Portland is Divided Into Five Quadrants

NW Portland : Streets NORTH of the Burnside and WEST of the Willamette river

SW Portland : Streets SOUTH of the Burnside and WEST of the river

NE Portland : Streets NORTH of the Burnside and EAST of the river

SE Portland : Streets SOUTH of the Burnside and EAST of the river

N Portland : Streets NORTH of Burnside and EAST of the COLUMBIA RIVER

 

So Exactly Where Are Portland’s Alphabet Blocks?

The Alphabet Blocks in Portland are located on the NORTHWEST side of Burnside St.

Alder (which doesn’t run / transverse the City as Burnside), Burnside, Couch (pronounced COO-ch), Davis, Everett, Flanders, Glisan, Hoyt, Irving, Johnson, Kearney, Lovejoy, Marshall, Northrup, Overton, Pettygrove, Quimby, Raleigh, Savier, Thurman, Upshur, Vaughn, Wilson . . . and X Y Z apparently didn’t exist in those days of yore — since we don’t have any more Alphabet Block street names for those renegade letters.

How Do the Street Numbers Come Into “Play” with the Alphabet Blocks?

Using the Willamette River as the starting point, all streets running perpendicular to the river are numbered.  Beginning with FIRST AVE. — Both on the EAST and WEST sides of the River.

SW First Ave. is WEST of Burnside, one block up from the river, southside.

2105 NW Hoyt is 21 blocks WEST of the river, north side of Burnside

Easy as ABC, 123 . . .
