Alberta Simmons Plaza Apartments are situated in the charming Piedmont Neighborhood on the corner of Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and Dekum Street. The Piedmont area is known for being a community with the personality of an old-time neighborhood filled with young families, singles, and long-established locals. The area’s combination of original well preserved Victorian style homes and the homes built in the mid-century give the community a warm, inviting neighborly feel.
While Piedmont may be farther north than other Portland neighborhoods, public transportation is still easily accessible. There are two Tri-Met bus lines that stop near the building the 6-ML King Jr. Blvd and the 8-Jackson Park/NE 15th that provide convenient commuting to downtown Portland as well as full access to all the city has to offer its residents.
Locals and visitors flock to nearby Peninsula Park, a 17-acre green space that includes the Peninsula Rose Garden, a National Heritage historical structure, and Portland’s first and oldest community center. A great park for all ages, Peninsula Park includes tennis courts, a gymnasium, basketball courts, paved jogging paths, play structures, and an outdoor swimming pool. For those who enjoy reading, the 9,500 square foot North Portland Library is just a mile away and can hold up to 30,000 books – your selection is endless! For movie lovers there is the 78 seat Jubitz Cinema that shows $5 movies and offers two movies daily with four showings every day starting at noon. Or if you prefer a larger venue the Regal Lloyd Center 10 & IMAX theater is close by the building.
Take a leisurely walk and stop by to enjoy a delicious cup of coffee or tea at Woodlawn Coffee and Pastry, Cafe Eleven, Elevated Coffee, and many more. If you choose not to cook there are numerous dining choices at nearby restaurants Piedmont Station Food Carts, The Oregon Public House, Breakside Brewery, Spitz, and Good Neighbor Pizzeria just to name a few. You can easily find places in the community to shop for groceries and pharmacy needs at Walgreens, Safeway, and Fred Meyer. If you really feel like a day of shopping the beautiful Lloyd Center Shopping Center has just about anything you’re looking for.
