Macdonald West brings affordable homes to Old Town - December 7, 2012

Yesterday, the Macdonald Center celebrated the grand opening of their new seven story building, Macdonald West.


The Macdonald Center has been serving neighbors in the Old Town/China Town neighborhood since 1999.  The Center helps low-income families and older adults join together to build connections and a sense of community.


The new Macdonald West building includes 42 affordable homes for low-income people and families.  The building also houses a "visiting program" where residents can enjoy visits from college students and other volunteers.


The Portland Housing Bureau was proud to invest $100,000 in Tax Increment Financing to help bring these new, affordable homes to Old Town.
