Friday morning marked the official launch of the Pardee Commons housing development in East Portland, and Nick was proud to join representatives from PDC, the Albina Community Bank, Earth Advantage, Proud Ground, the Oregon Department of Energy, and Cityhouse Builders, LLC, to celebrate. The principals of Cityhouse Builders, LLC, are Tom Walsh and Serena Cruz Walsh, champions of high-quality sustainable and affordable housing across Portland.

 

In the works since 2005, Pardee Commons includes homes for 10 families. The City's investment in these homes will benefit generations of Portland homeowners.

 

The high-quality homes are an asset to the Lents neighborhood, and have been greeted with enthusiasm by community members.

 

They are also green and sustainable, incorporating an important aspect of the City's development criteria and ensuring that sustainability is accessible to all Portlanders.
