Concordia Neighborhood – Your New Home

The Lindley Team at Mortgage Express | 503.517.8641

Concordia, one of the larger neighborhoods in North East Portland, has been slowly emerging as one of the city of Portland’s most eclectic and best loved. It is bordered on the west by the Sabin, Vernon, and North Woodlawn neighborhoods; on the north by the Sunderland neighborhood; on the east by Cully, and by Beaumont-Wilshire and Alameda on the south side.

Concordia is one of Portland’s most diverse neighborhoods, and a hub for the arts. Almost all of the Alberta Street Arts District is located within Concordia. Concordia University, a private liberal arts school, is also located in the center of the neighborhood.

Concordia was named for the University that lies at its center, near the beginning of the turn of the twentieth century in 1905. The college is founded by the Lutheran Church to train pastors and teachers for the greater Portland area, still maintains a liberal arts college on twenty-five acres in the center of the neighborhood.

The Alberta Arts District
The Alberta Arts District runs from around North East Fifteenth Avenue to around North East Thirtieth Avenue along Alberta Street. The district is home to near countless independent art galleries, art supply shops, artist studios, restaurants, bars, nightclubs, and boutiques. The district hosts a monthly art walk on the last Thursday of each month, and a street fair in the summer.

Concordia Neighborhood Schools:

  • McMenamins Kennedy School
    A hotel, a theater, several restaurants and bars, a soaking pool, conference rooms, and multiple event spaces all housed within a remodeled turn of the twentieth century elementary school? Only in Portland. Kennedy School has to be experienced to be believed. Whether you’re in for a soak, a movie, dinner, drinks, a conference, a concert, or the weekend, you’re sure to have great time in this beautifully converted and preserved building and grounds.
  • Concordia University
    Concordia University is now a four-year liberal arts college training young people in a wide variety of disciplines, through various pre-professional programs, and for the seminary.

Parks:

  • Fernhill and Alberta Parks
    Fernhilland Alberta Parks are the neighborhood’s largest public green spaces, though Concordia University does allow public use of its green spaces with some regulation. Fernhill Park is a twenty-four acre park located at the intersection of North East Thirty-Seventh and Ainsworth. Park amenities include softball diamonds and baseball, soccer and football fields, tennis courts, and a volleyball court. The park also has horseshoe pits, a playground and wading pool for the children, and picnic tables. The park hosts a free concert series over the summer, and Fernhill features public restrooms, too.
  • Alberta Park is a seventeen-acre park just inside the northern border of the Concordia neighborhood and adjacent to Vernon Elementary School. Alberta Park has a softball and baseball diamond, football and soccer fields, a covered basketball court, two tennis courts, and a playground and wading pool for the kids. The park also has picnic area, walking trails, and public restrooms.
