Latest Homestead Homes
suburban feel, yet it is less than 5 miles from the center of Portland. Portland real estate here is apt to sport wide lawns on leafy streets and homes laid out on quiet cul-de-sacs.
Just south of downtown, Homestead is also neighbor to Oregon Health and Science University and its associated hospital and medical facilities. The OHSU campus was the impetus behind a signature architectural feature of the neighborhood: the Aerial Tram, which runs from the top of the hill to the South Waterfront area. The tram was designed to link the medical school campuses of the teaching hospital.
Homestead residents have a selection of grocery markets. Moreover, there’s the Hillsdale Shopping Center. Hillsdale is a good example of the adage that you shouldn’t judge a strip mall by the stereotype. When the variety and quality of shops are taken into account, its clear that the Hillsdale center is a thriving resource.
