Richmond Neighborhood – Your New Home
The Lindley Team at Mortgage Express | 503.517.8641
Richmond is a melting pot of cultures, styles and vibes. Located between Hawthorne Street to the North and Powell Boulevard in Southeast Portland, this unique neighborhood offers something for everyone; from hip coffee shops near the trendy Hawethorne district all the way down south to suburban sprawl accompanied by its strip malls. Whether looking for an artsy vibe or just casual shopping spots – it’s all here!
Between these two extremes lies Division Street, an up-and-coming area with unique businesses housed in unassuming storefronts and warehouses. Restaurants in Richmond tend to be diverse; a favorite among locals is the Thai restaurant Pok Pok. Richmond Elementary School, which houses Portland’s Japanese Magnet Program, is located in the neighborhood. Known for second language education, it has many English language learners. This is not a neighborhood school; as a magnet school, it brings in students from all over Portland.
With its high walkability and friendly residents, Richmond is the perfect place to explore on foot and make some new friends. Whether you’re into expansive historic homes or quaint little houses, there are plenty of options for a wide range of budgets—all with that classic neighborhood charm! As one would expect from an urban area full of young professionals and families just starting out, prices tend to be quite reasonable here in Richmond.
