Cedar Commons, a new development by Related Northwest and Central City Concern in the Powellhurst-Gilibert neighborhood, will provide 60 affordable units targeted to people exiting homelessness.

Summer 2021

Related Northwest and Central City Concern are developing Cedar Commons, a 60-unit new construction project in the Powellhurst-Gilbert neighborhood of Southeast Portland. Forty (40) Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH) units will house chronically homeless individuals and people at risk of homelessness with services provided by Central City Concern. Ten of the PSH units are anticipated to house individuals with severe mental health issues. Cedar Commons will have offices for counseling, group kitchens on each floor, community space, laundry, a planned community garden, and off-street parking spaces for staff and residents. The project is located one mile from Central City Concern’s newly opened Blackburn Center providing services for substance use, primary care, behavioral health, and employment. Cedar Commons residents will also benefit from nearby public amenities including Midland Library, Ventura Park, the East Portland Community Center, and transit options.
