Dr. Darrell Millner Building

Under Construction
Community Development Partners and Self-Enhancement, Inc. are building 63 units of affordable family housing in Overlook with priority to displaced or longtime residents of North/Northeast Portland under the City’s Preference Policy.
Winter 2024

Located in the Overlook neighborhood in the Interstate Corridor URA, the Dr. Darrell Millner Building (fka 5020 N. Interstate) is a PHB-owned parcel offered through the Metro Bond Opportunity Solicitation. Named for the former Department Chair of Black Studies at Portland State University, the initial project offering included permit-ready designs for a family-focused development. Community Development Partners (CDP) and Self-Enhancement, Inc. (SEI) have partnered as co-owners/developers to engage and serve the BIPOC community, furthering the goals of the N/NE Preference Policy to redress historical displacement and harmful urban renewal practices. The project will have 63 units including 17 units serving households earning up to 30% AMI. Forty-eight (48) units will be family‐sized to meet the needs of large families in North and Northeast Portland. Notably, the 30% AMI units are distributed proportionately among the unit types to ensure families have access to appropriately sized units. SEI’s onsite resident services coordinator will assist tenants with navigating social services and accessing other community resources.

Amenities include a small community garden, outdoor play area and courtyard, bike storage, and onsite parking spaces. Approximately 2,500 square feet of neighborhood-serving commercial space will be located on the ground floor. The Dr. Darrell Millner Building is within walking distance of two MAX stations and frequent-service bus lines #72 to Clackamas Town Center and #4 to Downtown Portland. Patton Square City Park is three blocks north of the site; a range of grocery stores, Providence Medical Group, and Kaiser Permanente are all in close proximity.
