I Choose Alameda, Oregon Custom Home Builder
Todd Delahunt is Alameda, Oregon Custom Home Builder of choice.
Alameda is a neighborhood in Portland, OR that is located on the Alameda Ridge with views of Downtown, the Willamette River, and the Cascades. Northeast Fremont Street is the neighborhood’s main east-west thoroughfare and NE 33rd, its main north-south thoroughfare, makes up its eastern boundary.
The name comes from the Spanish word “alamo,” meaning a poplar or cottonwood tree. “Alameda” means, precisely, a public walk or promenade lined with poplar trees, and, by extension, a street lined with trees, like the English word “parkway.”
Alameda Elementary School of the Portland Public Schools district is located in the neighborhood, as is The Madeleine School, a Catholic K-8 school. It’s a neighborhood where you will find tree-lined streets, older architecturally significant and view homes, neighborhood shops, coffee places, and high level of community involvement.

Alameda Ridge This 4.4-mile loop through Alameda includes a turnaround block at a 1927 mansion built by lumber baron Thomas Autzen. The walk’s many stairs, beautiful homes and great views make it a fun adventure.
Pearson Farm This short walk of just over half a mile will take you around the perimeter of the Pearson Farm, one of the earliest settlements in Alameda, dating to 1875.
