Home Forward developed the Hazel Ying Lee Apartments (formerly known as 3000 SE Powell) on the site of the former Safari Club in the Creston-Kenilworth neighborhood—where residents are at risk from rising rents. The project provides a mix of studios and larger units for Portland individuals and families in need of stable housing. Hazel Ying Lee was a Portland-born daughter of first generation Chinese American parents, who went on to become the first Chinese American woman to fly for the United States military during World War II. Lee graduated from the nearby Cleveland High School. The Hazel Ying Lee Apartments are a short walk from Powell Park and provides easy access to the frequent-service bus line along Powell Boulevard. Since securing Portland Bond funds in 2018, Home Forward was able to acquire an adjacent parcel of land, expanding the project by 1.3 acres and increasing the total units to 206, and making it the largest new-construction project funded by Portland's Housing Bond.
