The 937 Condominiums

Truly Modern in the Pearl

The 937 is a great new property in the heart of the Pearl District that is definitely worth a look.  Located at 937 NW Glisan Street, this 112 unit, 16-story building gives us forward-thinking design in both its look and in its environmental innovation.  The project received LEED Gold certification and shines with all the modern lines and style that we’ve come to expect from designers, Holst Architecture.  Holst has designed several sharp condo projects in Portland including the Belmont Street Lofts, the Clinton Condominiums, the Thurman Street Lofts and the Sunrose Condominiums. 


The Basics

The 937 gives us 1 and 2 bedroom lofts ranging from about 930-1300 square feet.  There are also a couple of penthouse sized condos in the 1800 square foot range.  The building has a modern entrance with a concierge and nearly all-inclusive HOA dues that cover gas, hot water, and cable TV in addition to all the usuals.  


Where the 937 Really Shines

Floor plans for many newer condo projects make smaller lofts feel long and narrow like a box car with windows only at one end and limited natural light.  The 937 has floor plans that are wide (rather than long and narrow) and give each unit a long stretch of exterior wall with floor-to-ceiling windows.  The amount of natural light these condos is a real asset.


I was duly impressed by the larger 2-bedroom units that occupy the corner positions on each floor but I was particularly impressed by the one-bedroom floor plans.  The wow factor was pretty high the first time I walked into one of the smaller units.  With sharp interior design elements, a great floor plan and fantastic city views, I think the developers hit a home run with this project.  These condominiums would make any home-owner proud and make entertaining a pleasure.   



The 937 puts you in the heart of the Pearl District and within striking distance of the street car line and a couple of my Pearl District favorites:  after work favorite, Vino Paradiso; and the stylish Vietnamese restaurant, Silk.
