URBAN LIVING IN THE NORTH WILLIAMS NEIGHBORHOOD
The North Williams neighborhood, nestled between North Mississippi and the Alberta Arts district, is one of Portland’s most desirable areas, with plentiful options for eating, shopping and entertainment within a short distance. New Seasons Market, a local grocer and “the friendliest store in town,” is just three blocks from ecoFLATS, offering residents a wide variety of groceries and prepared foods. Some of Portland’s top local restaurants, including Kayo’s Ramen Bar, The People’s Pig, Life of Pie, and Ex Novo Brewing. There is also a plentiful number of local bars and lounges to visit, such as The Way Post, Maui’s, The Box Social, and Purrington Cat Lounge! A perk of living in ecoFlats is Hopworks Bike Bar & Grizzly Tattoo, located on the first floor of the building, offer residents 10% off every time they visit. N. Williams is very friendly to residents without cars, or those who don’t drive often. Thousands of cyclists use the N. Williams bike corridor every day, and this bike culture has had a large influence on shaping the N. Williams neighborhood, and the design of ecoFLATS. Public transit through TriMet is also easily accessible, as are shared ride options.
