The Portland Housing Bureau is moving forward with the development of affordable housing for veterans and middle-income earners in Portland’s South Waterfront neighborhood.
The new housing development, a six-story building, will be constructed on the plot known as “Block 49.” The project will have 209 affordable apartments over ground-floor space that may be used for retail, office, or community services. About 20 percent of the units will be reserved for veterans experiencing homelessness. Read more about this project on PHB's website.
The project is “shovel-ready” and at the final
stage of construction permitting, and construction is expected to begin in November. PHB is issuing a request for qualifications to nonprofit partners to serve as owner/operator of the project. Click here for the RFQ.
