Hawthorne East is the final project in Portland’s “11x 13” preservation campaign to preserve 11 buildings with expiring federal Section-8 contracts and mortgages. Under the 11 x 13 preservation initiative, this 71-unit, at-risk building was acquired by Northwest Housing Alternatives in 2013 using short-term financing and a three-year extension of the expiring rent assistance contract, followed by low-income housing tax credits (LIHTC) for acquisition and renovation and a new 20-year rent assistance contract from HUD. The 70 affordable units are targeted to seniors 62+ and adults with special needs.

Located in amenity rich Buckman, residents have access to a range of shopping and services along Hawthorne Boulevard and the surrounding neighborhood. Colonel Sumners Park is six blocks away and the project is just across the street from the historic Ladd’s Addition area. Project amenities include a community room, onsite laundry facilities, and onsite parking.
