Mikal Shabazz, Diversity and Community Liaison for the Bureau of Development Services, was on hand to represent BDS Director Paul Scarlett at the Grand Opening of the first transit oriented housing to debut on the Interstate Light Rail line.
Secretary of State Bill Bradbury and other livability leaders were also on hand to dedicate the first mixed use housing on the entire Interstate Light Rail line. Residents of The Overlook will have the fastest Light Rail service to downtown of any condo on the east side of the Willamette River.
The complex is also a smoke free building and American Lung Association Smoke Free Housing Coordinator, Colleen Hermann-Franzen, was present and made available information on the market demand for more smoke free housing.
One of the development partners, Mark Kirchmeier, complimented BDS for its excellent work and assistance in the building and completion of this historic project.
