A beautiful new apartment community is enlivening the downtown neighborhood of Redmond, Oregon. Midtown Place provides affordable housing for families and workers who drive the region’s economy, and offers healthy, comfortable living spaces that prioritize energy efficiency and low utility costs.
The 47-unit property meets Earth Advantage criteria and has received funding and support from Oregon Housing and Community Services (OHCS) and the Energy Trust of Oregon. Midtown Place has a warm and inviting atmosphere with lots of natural light, open floor plans, bike storage, and other welcome amenities for active families.
“It shows that by building spaces that people want to be in, you can truly change the way a community interacts with the built environment,” said Brianna Manfrass, Associate Director, Pinnacle Architecture.
The City of Redmond provided the property at a reduced price with a low-interest urban renewal loan. Working directly with the city has allowed Housing Works and Pinnacle Architecture to speed up permitting processes to quickly and efficiently create a space that benefits the entire community.
“We own these buildings for the long term, so durability, operability and maintainability are key factors. We want to create the best units for the most people,” said Keith Wooden, property manager of Housing Works, the developer of the project.
