About John's Landing
Johns Landing is a mix of eclectic shops, restaurants, historical residences, modern buildings, and high-end condominiums. It offers an unparalleled blend of urban culture and neighborhood charm that can't be found anywhere else in the city.
Fulton was the first to establish it in the 1870s as a place for dock and industrial workers. Later, the neighborhood was renamed after B.P. John's Furniture Company. It was this furniture company that built the first Johns Landing houses that are located on the hill. Fulton is located right above John's Landing, but it is difficult to reach from the valley as it rises steeply from there.
John's Landing's Riverfront was developed mainly in the 1990s. It's an incredible area. Many of the condos and townhouses overlook the Willamette River. There is also a trail that can be ridden or jogged to Portland. My kids used to ride that trail to Portland when they were young. We stopped at small beaches and enjoyed a treat in Portland before returning to John's Landing. Sometimes, we stopped at the Spaghetti Factory for dinner.
The Johns Landing Neighborhood runs along the Willamette River. It is a narrow, long strip of land measuring four miles in length. It starts south of Portland and ends at the Sellwood Bridge. From there it climbs up towards Barber Blvd before dropping down to the Willamette River. The area at the north shore was once an industrial zone. It grew southward along the Willamette bank until it reached John's Landing.
The river runs along a beautiful trail that begins at Willamette Park in John's Landing. In the last few years, a large portion of this neighborhood has seen a significant change.
John's Landing Condos
New high-density condo buildings and new housing are available, with many offering breathtaking views of the river or the mountains beyond. The Willamette Greenway has been improved with a continuous trail that runs from John's Landing to the Willamette River, through Portland, and back to West Portland. You can also cross the Steel Bridge and return south via the East Side Esplanade.
