Home Forward will rebuild 40 existing apartments and add 147 new homes at its Dekum Court development, located at NE 27th Avenue and Saratoga Street, with support from Metro Bond funds for the new units. The project will be built in phases to avoid displacing current residents, allowing them to move directly into new units upon completion. Of the 187 new and preserved units, 118 will have two, three or four bedrooms to accommodate a range of family sizes. The redevelopment will eliminate the current on-site Head Start classroom and build two new classrooms at the nearby Albina Head Start Clegg site, located approximately one-half mile away, increasing the community’s preschool capacity. Home Forward will also set aside a portion of the Dekum Court site for future development by an education partner. Phase 1 opened 7 units in September 2023, with Phase 2 completion to follow in late 2024.

Planned amenities at Dekum Court include outdoor play spaces, community gardens, and off-street parking. A centralized community center will offer a community room and kitchen, laundry room, staff offices, and other flexible spaces. The property is ideally situated in the amenity-rich Concordia neighborhood, with Faubion Elementary School two blocks away and a Walgreens Pharmacy and New Seasons grocery store approximately one mile away. Dekum Court is served by the #17 and #70 bus lines providing residents with access to inner Northeast/Southeast Portland and Downtown. Also nearby is the #75 bus line offering frequent service to the North Lombard Transit Center (MAX Yellow Line) and Hollywood Transit Center (MAX Red, Blue, and Green Lines).
