Neighborhood at Parallax Apartments in Portland, Oregon

LIVE IN THE HEART OF THE INNER EAST SIDE

There’s always something new to discover in Northeast Portland’s Boise neighborhood and the lively Williams District. Once renowned for its jazz music scene – and a former home to the city’s commercial warehouse district – the neighborhood has reinvented itself into a vibrant cultural hub. Residents of Parallax Apartments will appreciate our homage to the area’s eclectic past, with new streetscape murals by renowned Portland artist Tom Cramer, whose iconic mural appeared on the steel warehouse that formerly occupied our site. With a unique mix of modern industrial vibe and historically rich past, the Williams District reflects a diverse community with a creative energy all its own.
