Emmons Place

In Planning
Emmons Place is a new construction and redevelopment project by Northwest Housing Alternatives that will create 144 affordable units in Northwest Portland.
Fall 2022

Emmons Place will create 144 new units of affordable housing in a high opportunity area greatly impacted by gentrification and represents a rare new construction opportunity in inner Northwest Portland’s Historic Alphabet District. The project will serve priority populations identified under the Portland Housing Bond, including seniors, veterans, communities of color, and individuals with disabilities, while providing deeply needed services and 48 units of Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH) for people impacted by homelessness. Community spaces include a community room, bike storage, community courtyard, resident services office, and lounge. All residents will be served by Northwest Housing Alternative’s onsite resident services coordinator, with additional services provided to seniors and PSH tenants by Northwest Pilot Project and Native American Youth and Family Center (NAYA).
