Hazelwood Neighborhood – Your New Home
The Lindley Team at Mortgage Express | 503.517.8641
Hazelwood is located in East Portland and is an affordable community mixed with residential and commercial neighborhoods. Close to the IMAX, Hazelwood is an easy commute into downtown Portland that makes this area particularly attractive to those first time homebuyers who don’t have a lot of money to spend but want to be close to the action.
Residents of Hazelwood have their choice from condos and townhouses, modest ranch-style homes, and some larger houses. Most of the houses were built in the 1950s through the 1970s, while the apartments are newer developments. Many are on quiet, tree-lined streets, though some of the apartments are located in busier areas of the neighborhood, such as on 122nd Ave or Burnside Street. Because Hazelwood is fairly far from downtown Portland, homes tend to be more affordable than similar houses in ‘close-in’ neighborhoods. This is a good location for seniors and/or retired people to consider living.
Hazelwood is known for medical facilities, which include the fairly large Adventist Hospital and a number of doctors and other medical offices. As far as shopping, retail businesses are concentrated in Gateway Shopping Center and Mall 205. Easy access to shopping and dining makes this a popular area of the city.
There are also a number of parks in the area, providing a good balance with the relatively crowded commercial areas. There are a few nice parks dispersed around town and overall, a nice community. Many say Hazelwood has huge potential given its location, public transportation, employment opportunities and a growing interest from the community to improve the overall ambiance of the town.
