Neighborhood Highlight – Argay

This next highlight is on Argay in Northeast Portland Oregon.  What stands out about this urban neighborhood is how well preserved the houses are with mature landscaping and mid-century modern architecture.  The defining style is the sprawling split-level 1950s ranch.

Argay Terrace has large homes featuring double car garages, winding stairways and a variety of front door designs.  Breeze block walls are another feature you will see in the neighborhood, giving privacy and solid structure for gates or gardens that are a personal favorite of mine.

Luuwit View Park is a vast green space with playgrounds, picnic areas and off-leash dog park. The picture below from Portland Parks and Recreation shows the completed playground.

The Argay neighborhood is centrally located East of downtown Portland between NE 122nd Ave. and NE 148th Ave.  North of I-84 and South of the Columbia River.  The area between NE Sandy Blvd. and the River is industrial and commercial just FYI. 😉

Thank you,
