Grand Opening of Gray's Landing

0 Comments

South Waterfront's first affordable housing development boasts a 30,000 ft² ecoroof

This Thursday, REACH CDC, the Portland Housing Bureau, and City Commissioner Nick Fish will celebrate the Grand Opening of Gray’s Landing, the first affordable housing development in Portland’s South Waterfront neighborhood. Gray’s Landing is providing vital new homes for Portland workers and veterans. The building features 209 units of affordable housing, with 42 designated for low income veterans.

With acres of ecoroofs in South Waterfront already, the Gray's Landing project is in good company. The building boasts one of the largest ecoroofs in the Portland metropolitan region, and is targeted to receive LEED Platinum certification.  In addition to stormwater management benefits, ecoroofs contribute to the overall health of the building and the area around it.  The building will also benefit from a roof with a longer life span, which will save money down the road. 

The City of Portland contributed $5 per square foot to this project as part of the Ecoroof Incentive. Applications for the incentive are being accepted now, and you can visit the website to learn more.
