Features

Hazelwood offers quiet, tree lined residential streets in the midst of
several busy Portland roads such as Burnside Street and 122nd Ave.  The
TriMet MAX line runs through the area (Gresham-Portland line, and to the
airport), making this a fairly easy commute for those residents riding the
train.   Hazelwood does have a mix of residential and commercial
areas.  The largest area employer is the Adventist
Hospital
, and there are a lot of other medical related businesses in the
area (mostly closer to 102nd Ave).   You’ll find Mall 205 and the
Gateway Shopping Center, many retail shops, and some automobile-related
businesses such as car dealerships, which are primarily located along 122nd Ave.

Real Estate

This area features modest family homes, with many ranch
style and cape cod homes, generally built in the 1950s-1960s.  There are a
few original older homes mixed throughout the neighborhood, as well as some new
development such as townhouses and row houses.  

Because Hazelwood is not located "close in" to downtown Portland,
homes are still more affordable than many other areas in Portland.  This
may also a good area to check if you are looking for a starter home.  Once
the area is fully redeveloped with improvements to the aesthetics of the area
such as additional tree plantings and other upgrades to storefronts and
community areas, given it’s proximity to convenient transportation options,
there is good potential that property values may rise accordingly over the next
several years.

The recent new development of townhouses, apartment buildings and multi-story
condos in the area is because the Gateway area has been designated (by Metro’s
2040 plan) as a Regional Center.  This means it has been zoned to
eventually have a density similar to the Pearl District or the Lloyd Center. 
This doesn’t apply to the entire neighborhood, but does cover the area between
the Gateway Shopping Center and Mall 205.
