Quirky. Cool. Convenient. When you live at The Albert in North Portland (N. Williams Avenue at Beech Street), you’re more than connected to what you love most. The Albert is set within the long-established Boise neighborhood that’s mostly comprised of great restaurants, historical houses and huggable trees. Some refer to it as “North Williams.”” A half-mile away is the N. Mississippi Avenue community, which features an eclectic collection of independent shops, eateries and even a music studio.

It’s no exaggeration — here, you can do it all. Start off with a yoga class next door. On the same block, get your hair done at The Hub retail center. Grab lunch with friends. Bike all afternoon. Learn how to roast your own coffee. Then chow down and recharge on fresh, locally grown meals by evening. Sneak out for custom ice cream just below you in The Albert’s ground-floor retail shops. Then for a nightcap, head out to catch an indie band at The Box Social drinking parlour, an extra cozy spot to take a load off.
