A neighborhood that has seen many changes since it’s original plot was drawn in the 1850s, Sabin is now one of the most diverse, eclectic, and creative communities in all of Portland. Located in close-in Northeast, Sabin was once a poorer and racially segregated sector of Portland that has gone through serious demographic changes over the last 20 years.
The convenience of it’s location (it’s a hop to downtown, North, and Southeast) makes it a popular neighborhood for bike or public transportation riders. Neighborhood parks, restaurants, bars, and shops draw neighbors together and further establish Sabin as a tight-knit community.
Much like other close-in locations, you’ll find a variety of classic Portland homes, including bungalows and Victorians. Housing prices have been on a dramatic rise recently due to the rapidly growing popularity of Alberta Street and Fremont Street as well as the low inventory. This artsy neighborhood only shows promise of growing in popularity.
