Portland is growing like crazy, which has been outstanding for the economy. But, if you’ve recently been on the hunt for a 2 bedroom near the downtown area, you know that it’s no cakewalk. Sometimes, it seems like everyone and their mother is searching for a spot where they’re a hop, skip, and a jump away from the culture and diversity of downtown.
Don’t get discouraged, though! Osprey Apartments has some fantastic 2 bedroom options available. And, the best part – we’re just minutes from downtown as well as many other awesome features of Portland! Read on to find out more…
What Do We Mean “Minutes From Downtown”?
It’s a cinch to get to downtown from Osprey, and it doesn’t matter if you’re driving, walking, biking, or flying. (We put flying in there in case you’re reading this in the future and hover cars exist.) But, in all seriousness, you’d be hard-pressed to find another 2 bedroom in downtown Portland that has a location like Osprey.
We’re located in the South Waterfront District, which is just south of downtown PDX. It’s 7 minutes if you’re driving by car, 10 minutes if you’re on a bike, and 20 to 30 minutes if you’re on foot. Plus, if you’re a public transportation fan, it’s just a 15-minute jaunt.
Osprey Gives You the Best Bang for Your Buck
As if easy access to the convenience of downtown wasn’t enough! With Osprey, you also benefit from the palatial scene of the South Waterfront:
South Waterfront Greenway
The Greenway is a gorgeous park filled with greenery, trees, wildlife habitats, and walking and biking paths. So, while you may be a city slicker living in a 2 bedroom near downtown Portland, you’re also able to simultaneously connect with nature.
That’s right – Portland’s most beloved river is basically right in Osprey’s backyard. Not only do you get the opportunity to admire stunning river views on a daily basis, but also you can walk less than 5 minutes to get to the water!
Plenty of Great Places to Eat, Drink, and Exercise

Portland is a foodie paradise, and Osprey is lucky to have some of the best chefs cooking up a storm right around the corner. From doing-good-for-the-community pizza to marvelous dumplings, the South Waterfront has you covered.
Hankering for a delicious beer, cocktail, or glass of wine? When you live near downtown Portland, the possibilities for an amazing happy hour or nightcap are endless.
Osprey actually has a 24/7, fully-equipped fitness center on site, but there are several other top-notch spots for a decent workout or class. However, just keep in mind that you’ll be paying that gym membership fee, which is totally cool – we just thought we should make clear that our fitness center is free for residents.
