Location, Location.

Deering Center is the quintessential traditional American neighborhood. It is much loved as a family-friendly, walkable residential neighborhood close to downtown today, as it was in the 19th century when it was still an independent town. The neighborhood’s heart is its village center, a collection of businesses, services and institutions. 502 Deering Center is at the core of this village center, featuring traditional mixed-use with 3 commercial tenants and 6 apartments.

Walkability

Walkability was the underlying pattern when Deering Center was first settled as an independent town. Today, there is renewed interest in car-independence and active living. Superb walkablity remains one of the outstanding features that makes Deering Center a premier Portland neighborhood. The advantages of living in a walkable neighborhood go beyond saving money, getting exercise and reducing pollution. People feel more connected to their community when they see neighborhood children walking to school or friends strolling to the local bakery

The Best of Village Living and Urban City.

Village living offers unique off-peninsula opportunities for a quality neighborhood that is walk-friendly to shops, dining, local schools, higher education (UNE), library, recreation and practice fields, dog walking, jogging, cross country skiing and much more – all at your door step.

In addition, village life is a convenient drive, bus or bike to work, leisure or cultural activities in Portland’s urban downtown – the same qualities that has made Deering Center desirable for 150 years.

Apartment living at 502 Deering Center offers a “live simpler” approach, with high value on options to auto dependency, such as a bus stop in front and bike parking.

Commercial

502 purposefully created smaller-scaled studios and storefronts to provide opportunities for new neighborhood-based entrepreneurs.  These 3 new women-owned businesses complement each other, thereby enhancing their offerings in wellness, health and lifestyle.
