St. Johns strikes a dynamic balance between Portland and Not-Portland. It is close to the city but feels like a small town. The Colony is 25 minutes from PDX airport and 15 minutes from downtown Portland, a stone’s throw from numerous cafes and bars, supermarket, movie theater and live music venues. Just across the beautiful St. Johns bridge you’ll find Forest Park and Sauvie Island, two of the area’s most famous areas for cycling, hiking and birdwatching.
About the owner: Originally from Staten Island, NY - I'm a mom, restaurant owner and real-estate developer with a background in the arts. I've lived in this neighborhood since moving to Portland in 1996 when I opened a mixed-use art and performance space just in NE Portland. I currently own Yakuza, Nonna & DOC restaurants, Dash, a commissary kitchen and now The Colony.
Why the Owner Chose North Portland, Portland, OR, USA:
Portland is legendary for cutting-edge thinking in everything from art to fashion to cuisine to outdoor adventure, which makes it the perfect place for a concept like The Colony to be born. The Colony is totally unique. Our idea is to provide inspiring and comfortable lodging in an interesting, undiscovered corner of town, but also to think about the expanding needs and wants of today's global creative class. St. Johns has a feel that is also completely its own. Set apart from the rest of the city by a beautiful, historic bridge, it's a village with blue-collar roots that go back a century, in the process of reinventing itself thanks to a recent influx of young creative businesses.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
The Colony provides a unique opportunity to put together the right space for a list of possibilities that's as prolific as your imagination. From a simple overnight stay to a pop-up art show, catered dinner party, lunch meeting, company brainstorming or educational retreat, book club or yoga retreat, wedding, girls' weekend, long-term employee lodging with meeting and presentation space, movement arts classes or performances of all kinds. The baker's kitchen makes it possible to bring food and beverage service into the mix with ease.
