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 Parkrose area had been a small farming and residential suburb of Portland until the 1920s and was annexed by Portland in 1980. Located close to the airport and near major roads, commuting from the mostly residential suburban neighborhoods of Parkrose and Parkrose Heights is easy. The busier streets provide ample shopping and dining opportunities. The Parkrose/Sumner Transit Center is served by the Red line of the Max Light Rail and I-205 runs through the neighborhoods.
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.
Just six miles east of downtown Portland, Maywood Park is just east of Rocky Butte. Vintage homes and quiet streets are tucked in among old growth timber. Maywood Park is the area’s noted “city within a city” and was incorporated in 1967. Maywood Park is surrounded on all sides by the city of Portland and includes a scenic section of the area’s famed 40-Mile Loop multi-use path.
This neighborhood is wedged between Interstate 84 to the south, Interstate 205 to the east, NE Sandy Boulevard to the north, and NE 65th Avenue to the west. Madison South has a number of interesting features including the inactive volcanic cinder cone Rocky Butte, Catholic nature sanctuary The Grotto, and the Alameda Ridge, a gravel bar left over from the Missoula Floods. A number of restaurants and amenities may be found on NE Sandy.
Argay Terrace is a Northeast Portland subdivision primarily built in the 1960s. Consisting mainly of mid-century ranch homes, the neighborhood was designed to prevent high traffic streets, has a number of green walkways, a park, and is quite an attractive area. Close proximity to the I84 Freeway provides easy commuting into Portland or road trips through The Gorge.
Cully is a culturally and economically diverse mix of commercial and residential development. The modest homes on large lots are an urban farmer’s dream. In addition, recent improvements to streets and bike routes and the promise of a 25-acre park prove that Cully is truly an emerging neighborhood. Among residents, there is a strong sense of community identity and active local involvement to improve the quality and livability of the area.
Roseway is located in Northeast Portland and is bordered by the Rose City Park, Beaumont-Wilshire, Cully, Sumner, and Madison South neighborhoods.

Sullivan’s Gulch is an urban residential area that is located within walking distance to dining, shopping, and other entertainment. This well-established community has a mix of older East Portland homes, usually mid-sized to larger family homes located on streets with mature trees. Condos have been added in recent years. There are also some lovely vintage apartments and plexes for rent.
