Focus: 33 Affordable Housing Developments Planned for Portland (images)

St Francis Park Apartments

The St Francis Park Apartments, currently under construction in the Central Eastside.

Last December the Portland Housing Bureau delivered its second annual State of Housing Report to the City Council. The report noted the many challenges facing Portland, including that in 2016 “data indicates that housing affordability in Portland in the last year has gotten worse, an issue that is disproportionately impacting low-income residents, Communities of Color, seniors, and individuals with disabilities”. Nonetheless, the report also looked at what the Bureau is doing to address these issues, including: gaining voter-approval of a $258 million Affordable Housing Bond; passage of an Inclusionary Zoning Ordinance; increasing urban renewal funding dedicated to affordable rental housing; and dedicating short-term rental revenue tax to affordable rental housing.

The report listed nearly 1,900 affordable housing units in the production pipeline, split between 33 developments. Next Portland is re-publishing the entire list, along with images and information about the architect / developer where we have it.

Some buildings on the list are exclusively reserved for lower income people, while others include a mix of market rate units and subsidized affordable units. Figures for levels of affordability, expressed as number of units reserved for individuals or families at a percentage of Area Median Income (AMI), are taken from the Housing Bureau Report. Buildings that include market units are only receiving city funding towards the affordable units. Note that this list does not contain any buildings which will be required to provide affordable housing as part of the newly passed Inclusionary Zoning Ordinance (which came into effect this month); any future projects funded through the voter approved affordable housing bond; any developments that are funded without the help of the Portland Housing Bureau; or any developments that have been allocated funding since the publication of the report late last year.

Image from the Discussion Draft of the Central City 2035 Plan, showing a possible development scenario approximating future growth in the Pearl District over 20 years (Bureau of Planning & Sustainability). At least two of the sites shown as potentially developable have current proposals on them.

It is just over a year since Next Portland last did a roundup of the tallest buildings planned or under construction in Portland. At that time, we counted 25 buildings over 100′ in height planned. Today we count 40. Given the length of time it takes to complete a high rise building, many of the buildings on the 2016 were also on the 2015 list. Four buildings are no longer on the list this year, due to having been completed: Block 17, Pearl West, the Aster Tower and Park Avenue West. Seven buildings that were still in the design phase last year are now under construction. No building on last year’s list is known to have been cancelled.

Read on to see our complete list. Where possible, the heights given are the building height as defined in the Portland Zoning Code and published in the Design Commission’s Final Findings. In some cases the heights have been estimated.

Weekly Roundup: the return of South Waterfront, Multnomah County Courthouse, Garlington Center and more

Garlington Center

The Garlington Center by Scott Edwards Architecture for Cascadia Behavioral Healthcare

An article in The Oregonian noted that South Waterfront “is booming again”. Projects mentioned include Zidell Blocks 4 and 6Riverplace Parcel 3, OHSU Center for Health and Healing South and the OHSU Knight Cancer Research Building.

The Portland Mercury reported that the City Council will vote this week on an ordinance that will direct money raised from short term rentals such as Airbnb into the Housing Investment Fund. The measure would allocate $1.2 million of new money for affordable housing every year.

Cascadia Behavioral Healthcare is planning a new integrated health clinic and low-income apartment complex, writes OPB. The Garlington Center at 3034 NE MLK Jr Blvd will replace an existing building on the site owned by the non-profit.

Plans are moving ahead for the new Multnomah County Courthouse, according to The Oregonian. The County is now planning on including the District Attorney’s office and high volume courts in the building, which is likely to raise the cost of the project by $40-50 million.

An article in The New York Times by local writer Brian Libby looked at the three building One North development on N Williams by Holst Architecture and PATH Architecture. The Karuna East office building was recently completed, and is leased to digital creative agency Instrument.

Digital product agency Uncorked Studios has leased the entire third floor of the 811 Stark building, according to the Portland Business Journal. The Central Eastside building by Works Partnership is currently under construction.

The City Council approved 10 year tax exemptions for three buildings that will collectively include 81 units of affordable housing, wrote the Portland Business Journal. The buildings are the North Hollow Apartments at 1501 SW Taylor St, the Vancouver Ave Apartments at the NE and SE corners of the N Vancouver Ave and N Shaver St,  and the Mississippi Apartments on N Fremont St between N Mississippi and N Albina Ave and on N Cook Street between N Albina and N Borthwick Ave.

The Willamette Week wrote about a potential conflict of interest identified by the City Auditor, due to the fact that members of the West Quadrant Plan Stakeholder Advisory Committee are landowners in the area. The Auditor’s report said that individuals such as Greg Goodman of the Downtown Development Group should have disclosed their financial interests before casting any votes, including ones that increased the allowable heights at the Morrison and Hawthorne Bridgeheads.

The Oregonian wrote that Portland’s 3.6% apartment vacancy rate was the lowest in the nation in 2014.
