Albina Vision Trust and Edlen & Co. will develop Albina One, a 94-unit family-focused project, in the Eliot neighborhood of inner N/NE Portland. Designed to counter the intentional displacement of Black people from the neighborhood due to urban renewal, freeway siting, and long-term gentrification, the mix of one, two and three-bedroom units will serve young Portlanders, notably those that work in the trades. POICS + RAHS (Portland Opportunities Industrialization Center + Rosemary Anderson High School) will support residents with culturally specific education, mentoring, family outreach, employment training, and career placement services for Black and BIPOC households.
Amenities at Albina One will include community rooms on the ground and top floors, on-site property management offices, secure bike parking, an outdoor plaza with garden and play areas, and 16 parking spaces. Tenants will have access to multimodal transportation options including TriMet Rose Quarter Transit Station, the streetcar, frequent-service bus lines, Interstate 5, and bike share stations. The project is less than one mile from a grocery store and other commercial activities; also nearby are the Willamette River, Harriet Tubman Middle School, Dawson Park and Lillis Albina Park, and several churches with historic ties to Portland’s Black community.
