Located in the middle of Portland’s Slabtown neighborhood where iconic cafes and coffee shops nestle next to the kind of award-winning restaurants that give the area its in-demand reputation, Montessa is a crisp, stylish collection of 49 units on NW 20th Avenue and NW Pettygrove Street. Filled with cyclists who appreciate the abundance of secure bike storage and the area’s incredible 98 Bike Score, Montessa is home to people who love living and working in this vibrant part of P-town.
Residents of Montessa enjoy a highly walkable neighborhood that boasts a 94 Walk Score with all the amenities nearby – New Seasons, Orange Theory Fitness, Wallace Park, Legacy Good Samaritan Medical Center, MAX and Portland Streetcar stops. The list of local restaurants boasts some of the city’s favorites: Besaw’s, Please Louise, Lucky Labrador Beer Hall, Paley’s Place Restaurant and St. Jack all in walking distance. One of the country’s largest urban forests, Forest Park is a 10 minute bike ride and Providence Park, home to Portland’s beloved Timbers & Thorns soccer teams is a quick 5 minute ride. A nine minute bike ride leads over the Broadway Bridge to the Moda Center, home of the Portland Trailblazers.
In the coming years, Montessa residents will have front-row access to the redevelopment of land directly across the street owned by Con-way into a lush publicly-owned park. In addition to over 16,000 sq. feet of dedicated greenspace, the Con-way block will include retail, residential and live-work apartments. Additionally a neighborhood greenway project is planned along 20th Avenue that will further improve biking and pedestrian infrastructure all the way to the Goose Hollow neighborhood and downtown Portland.
The building was built in 2015 with materials that are both the highest quality and the lowest maintenance requirements. Each unit was designed to be as light-filled as possible with floor-to-ceiling, openable windows. Ample natural light, particularly in the grey winters of Portland, is an important feature. Sleek living spaces coupled with a community-centered living experience where residents gather for holiday parties, to watch their favorite sporting events and for movie nights, makes Montessa stand out as unique in a neighborhood of impersonal luxury buildings.
