Maplewood Neighborhood

Descriptions

Hosford-Abernethy is a vibrant and diverse melting pot located in the Southeast section of Portland. It’s bordered by Buckman, Sunnyside, Richmond, Brooklyn & Creston-Kenilworth on land with Downtown Portland & South Portland across the Willamette River to its west. Flanked northwards by Hawthorne Boulevard and southward down Powell Boulevard – The neighborhood brings together industry and residential homes while meeting along 29th Avenue at an exciting juncture that forms part of greater PDX!

Entrance to the neighborhood from the west can be via the Hawthorne Bridge on the north boundary and the Ross Island Bridge on the south boundary. Coming into the neighborhood from the west, the first few blocks are all industrial that slowly turn into a mix of residential, including apartments, and industrial as you drive further east. Finally, at SE 13th Avenue, you’re in a residential area with detached single-family homes.

The Hosford-Abernethy neighborhood is comprised of several small neighborhoods, not receiving its official name (HAND) until the 1970s, as Portlanders began to create neighborhood associations. There is a tremendous wealth of history to the HAND neighborhood, a history that can be traced back to the area’s earliest settlements even before when it was part of the separate, incorporated city of East Portland. Hosford-Abernethy has undergone numerous changes since the mid-nineteenth century and continues its evolution to this day.

Step foot into the bustling hub of SE 26th and Clinton, two blocks below Division. This vibrant area is home to 15 unique establishments; a variety including but not limited to delicious restaurants, New Seasons food market, cozy cafes and coffee shops, record store vibes plus an art gallery – all scattered within a 5-6 block radius! All this place needs now? An authentic Portland bookstore to complete its charm.

Two major public works projects are also expected to help spur growth in the area. The Portland-to-Milwaukie light-rail line that opened in September 2015 includes a MAX stop at Southeast 12th Avenue and Clinton Street, which will make the area more accessible. A streetscape project that began in early 2012 included paving, public art, new trees, crosswalks, curb extensions and other amenities.

Maplewood is a tranquil residential area tucked away along the western edge of Portland. Featuring winding roads and hidden alcoves, this neighborhood has an idyllic vibe that will make you feel right at home amongst its meandering streets lined with homes, parks and schools.
