Hassalo on Eighth is an area reclaimed from parking lots to a vibrant, eco-friendly, 24-hour community: A place where people work, live, gather, and celebrate. Hassalo on Eighth is a central foundation of the Lloyd neighborhood, one of Portland's new Renaissance neighborhoods.
The name Hassalo on Eighth comes from the revival of Hassalo Street and Eighth Avenue, which were lost years ago. The reconnection of these two lost streets represents the revival of the neighborhood itself.
Innovation and connection are key attributes of this neighborhood. Local history buffs may be interested to know that, fittingly, the name “Hassalo” also pays tribute to a stern-wheeler that operated in the Columbia River in the late 1800s.
