The Lloyd District is a primarily commercial neighborhood in the North and Northeast sections of Portland, Oregon. It is named after Ralph Lloyd, a California rancher, oilman, and real estate developer who moved to and started the development of the area.The Lloyd District is bounded by the Willamette River on the west, NE Broadway on the north, NE 18th Ave. on the east, and Interstate 84 on the south. Adjacent neighborhoods are Eliot and Irvington to the north, Sullivan's Gulch on the east, Kerns on the south, and Old Town Chinatown to the west.
The area west of Interstate 5 is called the Rose Quarter, home of the Moda Center and Memorial Coliseum. Prior to urban renewal in the 1950s, this area was an African American residential community, including many who had lost their homes in the Vanport flood of 1948.Most of the district lies east of I-5, where the Oregon Convention Center and Lloyd Center Mall are the principal landmarks.
