Pioneer of the Slabtown Renaissance

Welcome to LL Hawkins. The Heartbeat of the Slabtown Scene.

LL Hawkins is the cornerstone of style in the eclectic Slabtown district and a testament to the spirit of its namesake, Lester Leander "Colonel" Hawkins. Arriving in town in 1879, Colonel Hawkins was one of Portland’s most enthusiastic boosters, an avid outdoorsman, devoted naturalist, and was instrumental in the preservation of beloved nature sites like Forest Park. His passion for the city and its natural beauty was infectious, and it's this spirit that we've captured in our modern building.

As the first modern building to grace this part of Portland, we ignited the transformation of Slabtown into the cultural hub it is today. This is a community that's integrated with the local scene. Think retail spaces at your doorstep and a New Seasons just across the courtyard. In addition to everything Slabtown has to offer, you’re also minutes from a never-ending supply of the four Bs: boutiques, bistros, bars and breweries located in The Pearl and NW 23rd neighborhoods.

With a selection of studio, one-, and two-bedroom apartment homes, we cater to a range of modern lifestyles. Our top-floor lounge is a perfect spot to socialize and unwind with incredible view of the hills surrounding the city. To meet the demands of our eco-conscious residents, we also offer controlled access parking equipped with electric car charging stations.

So, if you're ready to live in the heart of Portland’s evolution, LL Hawkins is your next new home.
