Situated above Halsey Street in Northeast Portland, Halsey Highlands offers each homeowner a neighborhood that reflects Pacific Northwest Living.  Whether it’s a home with a view of Mt. St. Helens, or a home nestled in the trees, each style and each lot is all about what it is like to be a part of living here in Oregon!

The land that is Halsey Highlands belonged to the Picco Family. They were long-time residents of the area. In 2015, they decided it was time to develop the land, the Picco’s wanted someone who would share their vision for the area. They met with Rob Venema, owner of Rosemont Development.
