Overall a great, clean, and well-managed place to live. Wish the gym was a bigger and more private. Walking distance to many convenient locations!
The experience I have had at Block 17 has exceeded my expectations in every respect. I love everything about the community! I am looking forward to a very long stay at this unique, modern, and upscale complex in the heart of Portland's Pearl District!
Moved in to Block 17 with my family a month ago, and our experience living here has so far been great. We love the nice facilities in this building. The staffs and residents here are also very friendly. We look forward to exploring more about this building and the neighbourhood.
Beautiful area to call home in downtown Portland. Block 17 is footsteps away from great restaurants, coffee shops, yoga studios, gyms, parks and dog friendly destinations. Block 17 is a modern building right next to the river offering beautiful views of either the sunrise in the morning or the sunset in the evening. We love living in the Pearl!
Super welcoming and made me feel right at home!! The amenities are new and Block 17 offers amazing events to relax and get to know fellow residents!
A wonderful residence, top-of-the-line apartment finishes, spectacular, attentive staff, and a great place to call home. Looking forward to renewing for another great year.
The apartments are nice and the buildings are very well maintained. The only downside is that the leasing team is really overwhelmed with their jobs (serving as happy hour bartenters, package porters, and leasing agents).
On top of the amazing rooftop view, I'm really impressed by the professionalism and agility of Block 17 on giving all the support and clarifying all doubts during the processo of closing the leasing.
My apartment looked and smelled great on move in. I feel very welcome and the residents are great! My dog loves all of her new playmates. Apartment is understaffed at no fault to the leasing team. Very quick and efficient move in.
We've been here for over a year and love it here at Block 17! We love our apartment unit, love that it's a smaller building than NV next door, so you can actually get to know your neighbor and elevators are never jam packed, etc. The staff is great, always super friendly and helpful- especially Kim! Gym is awesome, rooftop terrace is great, and parcel pending service is amazing. At any building/community little things and annoyances come up of course, but I can honestly say that I can't think of anything specific that has bothered me about Block 17. Overall very happy to be here!
Ideal place to live with wonderful residents and excellent staff. I would highly recommend moving to this building when you come to Portland.
Great community, wonderful staff, beautiful finishes, wonderful amenities. One of the best buildings in the city. Happy to be renewing for another year!
Kim M. is AMAZING!!!! And the maintenance staff goes above and beyond -- They helped us install extra closet organizers! Not to mention our pups are loving being next door to the dog park!!
Block 17 is a great building with a lot to offer. Only complaint is that current management seems to be less resident focused than past management. The entire rooftop has been rented out (which we were told the deck area would always be available, even when the clubhouse was rented out). And there have been more and more apartments being rented through AirBnB which leads to a lot of unfamiliar faces, louder groups, and people stuck in the elevators/loitering around the entrances trying to figure out how to get in. Other than these few issues we are still very happy with the Block 17 community and would recommend it to all of our friends. The location is excellent.
New to apartment but so far so good. Service elevator was not reserved as advised though, so move in was a little more frustrating than it needed to be. It all worked out though.
