Live. Work. Swim. Eat. Shop. Flourish.

Welcome to 5 MLK – a center for retail, office and apartments all at the Burnside Bridgehead in Southeast Portland. It’s a place to live, work, swim, eat, shop and flourish.

Our Vision

We set out to build something unique. Something that speaks to Portland’s creative spirit and the vibrancy of the Pacific Northwest. A place alive with rich greenery, natural light, and thoughtful artwork to inspire those who live here. With a focus on sustainability, restoration and hydrology, we designed 5 MLK with intention, to bring purpose to every nook and cranny. We stayed true to ourselves throughout the process and, in the end, created this. 5 MLK.
