Meridian Gardens is Central City Concern’s (CCC) new 85-unit affordable housing development planned for the Powellhurst-Gilbert neighborhood in outer Southeast Portland. The project will provide Single Room Occupancy (SRO) and studio units to individuals and couples experiencing or at risk of homelessness who are in Substance Use Disorder treatment or recovery. The site is adjacent to the Cedar Commons Phase I building, a Permanent Supportive Housing community serving chronically homeless individuals. Phase II will expand upon CCC’s campus of supportive housing buildings by providing recovery-specific services, with a peer-delivered services approach that has been the cornerstone of Central City Concern’s programs for over 40 years.

Planned amenities at Meridian Gardens include common kitchens and community rooms, recovery group rooms, a supportive services office, resident gym, and large shared outdoor courtyard. A gardening area with raised beds will be shared with the Cedar Commons Phase I building. Tenants will have convenient access to the Division Street Bus Rapid Transit line to Downtown Portland, and a grocery store, pharmacy, and other commercial services are located less than a half-mile from the project on SE 122nd Ave.
