South Waterfront Condos

Condos for Sale at the South Waterfront in Portland

South Waterfront Condos in Portland

The lovely South Waterfront district is conveniently located just south of downtown on the west bank of the Willamette River. 

Portland's south waterfront is dominated by 4 High Rise Condos: The John Ross, The Meriwether East and West and Atwater Place. There are a few other condos in the vicinity, but they are not "officially" part of the South Waterfront. The south waterfront is Portland's newest condo neighborhood. It was built on former ship yards along the Willamette river, so river, city and mountain views abound in this neighborhood.

The Meriwether East and West were built and sold before the "crash" hit Portland, but the John Ross and Atwater Place were not as fortunate. The John Ross came on the market in 2006 as thing were starting to unravel, and The Atwater in 2007 as real estate prices were crashing. Both of these building used auctions to move excess inventory, and the John Ross has sold out its developer units, and the Atwater is sold out.

The location of the South Waterfront, just south of downtown and on the streetcar line gives its residents great access to downtown. And they built a tram to connect OHSU Hospital with the south waterfront. There still is not the critical mass of residents in the area to support a robust retail business, but there are a few shops, restaurants and other services in the new "self contained" little city. As the area grows, it will be interesting to see if the South Waterfront becomes a destination neighborhood like its big brother the Pearl District.

For now, Portland condos in the South Waterfront district are a dreamy, somewhat quieter and more affordable alternative to the Pearl District, and offer many of the same conveniences.

"Downsizing Downsides" by Wade Nkrumah

Basement.
Garage.
Closet.
You’ll have the latter when you move into your condominium. And you’ll wish you had at least one of the former two, which is what you’ll miss most when you downsize from your house to a condominium.
Even in houses, there’s often not enough closet space. Thus, basements and garages function as catchall storage in a great percentage of houses.
Therefore, if your house has a basement and garage, your what-I-miss list doubles in size when you trade your house for a condo. In most cases, closet and storage space in your condominium won’t double.
Lack of seemingly adequate closet and storage space can be the biggest downside to condominium living. So, if you’re a collector or a pack rat with hoarder tendencies, you’re going to have to curb your enthusiasm or stay in your house with the basement and garage.
Of course, there are creative storage solutions a plenty, even for the smallest condominium space. And – you guessed right – they come at a cost.
So, the smart condominium shopper puts closet/storage on a par with that which he or she considers the single most important living component or space.
For many, it’s the kitchen. For others, it’s high-ceilings. For her it’s the living/dining area. For him, it’s the wall of floor-to-ceiling windows.
Whatever is deemed most important, the priority mindset when looking for a place should be, for example, kitchen and closet/storage or floor-to-ceiling windows and closet/storage.
Most everyone needs space for computer/electronics packaging, fitness/recreational/sports equipment, suitcases, and miscellaneous collectables.
Thus, if having a place to store those skis or surfboard is a must, the condominium at the top of your list might be the wrong fit if there’s closet space only for your clothes and no other storage space in the building.
Many condominium buildings have additional storage space, but many don’t. As for garages, unlike in your house, the assigned spaces in condos are for cars, not storage.
