Broadway Corridor Request for Qualifications
To be released by end of 2023
By end of 2023, PHB will release a Request for Qualifications for a half block of affordable housing development in the Broadway Corridor. The Broadway Corridor is a multi-phased Master Plan to redevelop approximately 34 acres in Portland’s Central City, including the former U.S. Postal Service site and adjacent properties near Union Station. The goal of this RFQ is to identify qualified development teams who are looking to develop half of Block 4, the first phase of PHB’s affordable housing development goals for the Broadway Corridor. After the initial RFQ release at the end of 2023, a full solicitation release will follow in Spring 2024.

Portland's Local Implementation Strategy
The Portland Housing Bureau is the partner jurisdiction supporting Metro Housing Bond implementation for the City of Portland. Portland’s Local Implementation Strategy was informed by the feedback and perspectives of underrepresented communities, particularly Communities of Color, seniors, immigrants, refugees and persons living with disabilities. Engagement efforts occurred over a four-month period (March to July 2019) and reached more than 250 individuals and community member groups.
Total Project Funds Allocated to Portland: $211 Million
Total Production Goal: 1,475 units
- 30% AMI: 605 units
- Family-sized: 737 units
- Supportive Housing: 300 units
PHB’s work will be guided by the following Metro Housing Bond principles:
- Lead with racial equity. Ensure that racial equity considerations guide and are integrated throughout all aspects of program implementation.
- Create opportunity for those in need. Create housing for Communities of Color, families, people living with disabilities, seniors, Veterans, and households experiencing or at risk of homelessness.
- Create opportunity throughout the region. Ensure investments are distributed across the region.
- Ensure long-term benefits and good use of public dollars. Provide for community oversight to ensure transparency.
