911 SE 60th Avenue, Portland, OR 97215
Mt Tabor has been a very fashionable address for almost as long as Portland has been a city. These apartments do justice to that statement in keeping with the 1924 elegance in which it was built. Art Deco lights along the roof create columns of light across the imposing, rich brick façade. The keyed entrance is exquisitely designed with tiled stairway, scrolled wrought iron banisters and pale golden walls. Original brass mailboxes are a bright feature at the entry, accented by the stained glass at the transom. Sweeping stairs on either side of the entry lead to several floors of apartments.
Every apartment is unique, details just slightly different from each other. The woodwork remains untouched with its original deep green stain resembling a rich aged patina. Art Deco lighting enhances the natural light from the large windows. Tiled counters and leaded glass adorn the period kitchens, some with quaint period appliances. The tiles in the baths on the floor and around the tubs are reminiscent of the Arts and Crafts style. Built in armoires and huge closets offers plentiful storage space. Many of the apartments overlook the courtyard while others afford a view of the neighborhood architecture.
Mt. Tabor Apartments are conveniently located on the corner SE 60th and Belmont. A short distance from highway 84, it offers quick access to downtown, Belmont area and the Hawthorne District.
