Our History

Holladay Park Plaza has been serving Portland-area seniors since 1967. It was conceptualized in 1963 when the Presbytery of the Cascades partnered with the Lloyd Corporation to build a continuing care retirement community in the Lloyd District near downtown Portland. The community, which came to be called Holladay Park Plaza, was designed to serve residents who desired a vibrant, urban lifestyle.

In 1999 Holladay Park Plaza joined the Pacific Retirement Services family of affiliates. The Plaza’s board of directors felt that the affiliation would allow their community to provide enhanced services to residents. Since the affiliation, Holladay Park Plaza has been extensively renovated and remodeled, adding many services and amenities to its campus, as well as many new apartments.
