By next fall, the metro region will have at least 154 new affordable housing units added to its inventory thanks to a project breaking ground Friday.
PHC Northwest, which offers educational training and job opportunities to individuals with mental, physical and developmental disabilities, is collaborating with affordable housing developer Home First Development on the new project.
PHC Northwest and Home First Development will break ground tomorrow on an affordable housing complex that will bring 154 units to outer Southeast Portland by next fall.
Located at 121 S.E. 146th Ave., the complex will include 154 one- and two-bedroom units and studios, as well as a community center, a small soccer field and a playground.
According to an announcement about the groundbreaking, this will be the fifth project the two entities have collaborated on. It is expected to be completed by fall 2017.
