HOUSING / Affordable Housing

Innovative, attainable housing that endures.

Truly affordable housing projects bring lasting investment value—to our development partners and our cities, now and tomorrow—and abiding social benefits to the people and families who live in them. Our beautiful and energy-efficient housing is filled with practical amenities, attractive and long-lasting materials, and most importantly, warmth, vibrancy, and life. Everyone deserves a home that connects them to their neighbors, friends, and family. Everyone deserves the chance to feel safe and proud of where they live. Our affordable housing makes these hopes real.

HOUSING/Affordable Housing Project List

Designed to bring diverse communities displaced by gentrification back into Eliot, a once-predominantly Black neighborhood in Northeast Portland, the Songbird Apartments provides more accessible housing to people who urgently need it. This ground-up community along North Williams Avenue serves very low- to low-income families, giving priority to longtime and displaced prior residents of North and Northeast Portland. Funded by the Portland Housing Bureau, the five-story apartment building includes 40 units for Section 8 residents and 61 one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments, as well as a learning kitchen, large event space, and outdoor seating areas. BRIDGE worked closely with community leaders and members to determine how Songbird could best serve them, and their feedback informed everything from our color palette to how we programmed outdoor spaces. Meant for people who wouldn't otherwise be able to live here who have been priced out of the neighborhood and, built to market-rate quality, Songbird fits in with the Eliot neighborhood—and makes it better.
