Pearl District

The Portland Streetcar has had much to do with the massive redevelopment in the Pearl District.  Surrounding blocks have been, and are being, transformed from mostly old warehouses to medium-rise residential development, often with first-floor  shops and restaurants.  The neighborhood has become an arts district, and has achieved destination status.   

The high clearance and part of the massive arch and roadway of Fremont Bridge are prominent in this view looking north along NW 11th Ave. in the heart of the district.  The streetcar approaching is a couple of blocks away, on its way to downtown and to Portland State, then the last stop on the line.
