Alameda is a classic old Portland neighborhood with grand homes, tree-lined streets, great schools, and beautiful views along Alameda Ridge. This is a close-knit community, where you’ll find summer block parties, spring neighborhood clean-ups, and strong support of local schools. Built in 1911, Alameda Elementary School is one of the top-rated public schools in the city. The Madeleine School, a private parish school for grades K-8, is also highly-regarded. Multiple generations of Alameda families have attended Alameda or Madeleine schools, fostering a deep connection to the school’s communities.
While Alameda is primarily a residential neighborhood, you’ll find a small clutch of businesses along Fremont at 28th Avenue. Among the newest additions, Guilder is an airy Scandinavian-inspired coffee shop and an ideal destination for your morning caffeine fix. The same building also houses an upscale pet supply store and a new pilates and yoga studio. Across the street, the long-standing Italian bistro Lucca serves up delicious pastas and wood-fired pizzas. Around the corner, gardeners will swoon over Garden Fever, which is a neighborhood nursery that also offers classes and workshops.
Alameda’s proximity to other neighborhoods provides easy access to many more restaurants and shops in the Alberta Arts District, Beaumont District, and Hollywood District. You’ll find three New Seasons Markets, two Whole Foods, and two farmer’s markets all a mile or less away. Most residents are just a half mile or less to one of three stunning parks: Wilshire Park, Grant Park or Irving Park. The close-in northeast location also affords one of the shortest average commutes in the city. In fact, 16% of Alameda residents commute by bike.
Steeped in storybook charm, most of the homes in Alameda were built between 1910 and 1940 and include impressive Craftsman homes, English Tudors, and colonials nestled on large lots.
