More on Portland's Irvington Neighborhood
Irvington is a luxury neighborhood in downtown Portland Oregon located on the east side of the Willamette River. This rectangular bordered area extends east to west from NE. 7th Ave. to NE. 26th Ave. and north to south from NE. Fremont St. to NE. Broadway St. It borders the neighborhoods of King, Alameda, and Sabin as well as Grant Park, Sullivans Gulch, Lloyd District, and Elliott. Parts of Sabin and Alameda extend into the northeastern part of Irvington creating a couple of areas of overlap.
This neighborhood is distinguished by a number of large stately homes, larger lots, and high-end properties. Originally platted back in 1887, Irvington got its initial development in the 1890s with the help of Ellis Hughes and the Irvington investment company. It was a self-contained middle to upper-class residential community that prohibited any commercial or industrial activity to maintain higher property values. As normal growth and development occurred, competition from Rose City Park and Laurelhurst developments began to take place but, Irvington has maintained its residential status and has several homes listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

You'll find tree-lined streets, a simpler way of life, and quaint neighborhoods. Most homes were considered upper-middle-class when they were constructed.
