About Pearl District

Once known as the Northwest Industrial District, the Pearl District is now one of Portland’s most desirable neighborhoods according to locals. In the last two decades, the Pearl District has become an example of a vision becoming a reality. It went from rundown warehouses to a beautifully transformed center of Portland, the Pearl District emits originality and vibrancy.

There are a few theories as to where the name the Pearl District came from. One is called “Thomas Augustine’s theory”. Thomas Augustine, a Portland native and artist, was described the area as a collection of buildings with exteriors similar to an oyster shell with art the quality of a pearl inside. Some believe there used to be an oyster factory in the area, while others insist t Chinese sailboaters hid pearls beneath the cobble-stoned street. Regardless of which theory you believe, the Pearl District has taken once-worn exteriors and created a beautiful highlight of Portland.

Being smack-dab in downtown Portland, the Pearl District has a great art scene and extensive brewery list. If you are a fan of craft beer and beautiful art, the Pearl District is the place for you.

The Pearl district is bordered to the north by Willamette River, NW Broadway to the east, W Burnside Street on the south, and Stadium Freeway to the west.
