Major Employers

Amazon opened a fulfillment center less than 5 miles away with 2,000 employees. Other nearby national employers include: Boeing, ONSemiconductor, Microchip, Honda, US Bank, Subaru and FedEx. In addition, the business corridor from Fairview to the Portland Airport hosts a significant number of national, regional and local light-manufacturing and distribution companies.

Low Vacancy Rates

Vacancy rates for East Multnomah County remains below 5% which has been the case for the last 5-7 years. Low vacancy rates in the East Portland metro allow new projects to be absorbed without disrupting the overall market with new projects pending for Fairview.

Rent Control Exemption

Oregon’s Rent Control rules do not apply to new construction for 15 years.

Fairview Village 01


Selected by the Urban Land Institute as a "Great Planned Community", Fairview Village is featured as one of the most innovative of the new communities that are being juxtaposed with suburban sprawl as an alternative growth pattern. Fairview is a community with the warmth and security of a small town and the energy and convenience of an urban area... a good place to live and work. A place to call home.

Community of Residents and Merchants

Fairview Village is a mix of houses, rowhouses, and apartments built among retail, office, and other civic amenities. Already built are 26,000 sf VA clinic, La Petite Academy Preschool, the Woodland Elementary School, Fairview City Hall, Fairview Columbia Library, numerous public parks, Fairview's U.S. Post Office, and the retail anchor, TARGET. A variety of shops, businesses, and services are available on Village "Main" Street and Market Drive.
