Irvington Historic District

The Irvington Historic District was recently listed in the National Register of Historic Places, the nation’s official list of buildings, structures, objects, sites and districts important to American history. The register is maintained by the National Park Service. The Irvington Community Association (ICA) prepared the application with support from neighborhood residents.

About the district

The Irvington Historic District is recognized as an early “streetcar suburb.” It is also recognized for its collection of different styles and periods of architecture, generally houses constructed from 1891-1948. The district encompasses a square-shaped area bounded roughly by NE Fremont St. to the north, NE 27th Avenue to the east, NE Broadway to the south and NE 7th to the west. The area includes approximately 2,800 buildings, nearly doubling  the number of designated properties in Portland.

Oregon law requires local governments to protect resources that have historic designations. This generally means exterior changes to properties in the district will require a historic design review process, as described in the Portland Zoning Code. Property owners in the district can potentially qualify for historic property tax incentives under a program administered by the State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO).

About the process

The historic district listing followed a public review process that began in March 2010, when the proposal was submitted to SHPO by the ICA. The Portland Historic Landmarks Commission and the Oregon State Advisory Committee on Historic Preservation reviewed and endorsed the proposal. The final decision, including considering public support for the district, was made by the National Park Service in Washington, D.C., which maintains the National Register.

Now that the historic district has been designated, City records and maps (including PortlandMaps) have been updated. Links to other Historic district maps can be found here

Various plans to enhance the N/NE Quadrant of Portland's Central City are in the works. Staff from two such projects, the Draft Rose Quarter District Plan and the N/NE Quadrant and I-5 Broadway/Weidler Plans, invite you to a Joint Open House to learn more about the projects and offer your input.

The Portland Development Commission is leading the project team for the Rose Quarter project. The N/NE Quadrant project is a collaborative project between the City of Portland and the Oregon Department of Transportation. All members of the community, especially those who live or work in and/or travel through the N/NE Quadrant area are encouraged to attend.

The people who live and work in or visit the N/NE Quadrant can provide valuable perspective during the district's planning process. To capture some of that insight, the Open House will provide an interactive opportunity for attendees to learn about district-specific planning projects and help plan for the future of the area.
