Welcome to Johns Landing

 

Ideal for professionals and young urban families seeking a relaxed Portland vibe (sans the Portlandia clichés) , Johns Landing is a long-established, solid mid-to-upper-middle class neighborhood. Located directly on the banks of the Willamette river, it’s ideally situated between affluent Dunthorpe and the eco-urban South Waterfront District, just immediately south of Downtown Portland.

We’ve completed four transactions — two sales and two purchases in Johns Landing and in the South Waterfront — with Quick & Associates. Kathy provided outstanding representation in each of the four. We have enjoyed working with her and highly recommend her firm.

NEIGHBORHOOD VIBE

Welcome to Johns Landing

Ideal for professionals and young urban families seeking a relaxed Portland vibe (sans the Portlandia clichés) , Johns Landing is a long-established, solid mid-to-upper-middle class neighborhood. Located directly on the banks of the Willamette river, it’s ideally situated between affluent Dunthorpe and the eco-urban South Waterfront District, just immediately south of Downtown Portland.  Like most Portland neighborhoods, architectural styles vary, but a solid majority of homes in Johns Landing are classic craftsman-style. 

Dotting the banks of the river are prime waterfront condos, which range from several million dollars in value to affordable one bedroom units. With lush landscaping and low-rise designs, these condominiums have a distinctly different feel than the soaring high-rises found in the South WaterfrontDowntown and Pearl Districts.

 
How many neighborhoods can claim their own sailing club? Willamette Sailing Club is adjacent to Willamette Park. The park, which features outdoor concerts and movies, includes 26.5 acres of picnic areas/shelter, boat ramp/ dock, off-leash dog area, soccer field and tennis courts. A riverfront path provides pedestrian and bike access to the South Waterfront and Downtown.
 
 

Riverpoint, Bankside, RiverwindRiveridge and Willamette Shores form a cluster of condo complexes in the heart of Johns Landing. Another cluster, just a short walk north, includes The LandingHeron Pointe and River’s Edge condos.  And at the northern-most boarder of Johns Landing, just to the south of the South Waterfront District is Avalon Penthouse Condos, which are perched above the River’s Edge Hotel and Spa.

With views of the river, Mt Hood and Mt Saint Helens, many homeowners express how connected they feel to nature. Johns Landing is very walkable to shops like Zupan’s Market and restaurants like Elephant’s Deli, which is located across the street from the landmark Water Tower building.

Johns Landing Connection to Portland

Johns Landing connects to Portland on many important levels: its location, its access and its civic involvement.

Johns Landing is located in what used to be commonly known as the Corbett-Terwilliger-Liar Hill neighborhood, which still appears on Google Maps to this day. However, you’ll notice the neighborhood has expanded and the name changed to South Portland. Its boundaries are from Downtown Portland to the north, the Willamette River to the east, Portland’s Southwest Hills to the west and Dunthorpe to the south. 

This central location provides access to world-class amenities, attractions and schools: Portland’s Aerial Tram and a farmer's market are just minutes away in the South Waterfront District, Oaks Bottom Wildlife Refuge is just across the Sellwood Bridge.

The loop through Oaks Bottom Wildlife Refuge burrows you into Portland’s wild side—right in the middle of the city. Start at Sellwood Park among blufftop picnickers, dogwalkers, and baseball games and descend the sloping woods into the refuge.

Top-rated Wilson High School is only a few minutes away in the Hillsdale neighborhood. Lewis & Clark University, renowned for its education and law schools, is located just to the south. And Oregon Health Sciences University main campus overlooks Johns Landing from the Southwest Hills.

There are multiple access points to a pedestrian and bike friendly riverwalk—known as the Willamette River Greenway Trail, which connects you to Portland’s Tom McCall Waterfront Park and Vera Katz Eastbank Esplanade—then onto the Springwater Corridor Trail

The South Portland neighborhood has its own active neighborhood and business associations, which are governed by City of Portland, Office of Neighborhood Involvement
