Largely dominated by the Lloyd Center shopping mall (complete with its own indoor ice skating rink!), plus a lot of chain restaurants, this neighborhood feels unlike any other in Portland. The Oregon Convention Center and the Moda Center are in the area too. It’s a popular district when there’s an event, but otherwise kind of bland. Serviced by the MAX light rail.
Average home prices are released yearly by Portland Monthly. While prices shown are an average, actual home prices can vary greatly across a neighborhood.
While primarily an industrial district, Sunderland does have a small residential area along NE Marine Drive. The area is home to warehouses, supply yards, and wetlands. There are pockets of contemporary and new construction homes as well as houseboats along the Columbia river. The Dignity Village homeless settlement is also located in Sunderland.
The Powellhurst-Gilbert neighborhood borders Montavilla, Hazelwood, and Mill Park to the North, Centennial to the East, Pleasant Valley to the East/South, and Lents and South Tabor to the West. It’s a neighborhood of cultural and ethnic diversity, easily commutable, with well-regarded schools, and with natural greenspaces nearby.
