Innovative Renovation Starting!
Salazar Architect is collaborating with the Center for Public Interest Design (CPID) on an innovative affordable housing renovation for Community Development Partners. Cascadian Terrace is a HUD-subsidized, 103-unit affordable housing apartment building located in North Portland. Originally designed as student housing for Cascade College, the building has served as affordable housing for the last two decades. The $4 mil. renovation includes opportunities for improved community spaces and courtyards, in addition to addressing maintenance needs. CPID will be leading the community engagement effort with collaborating organizations Engage and Friendly Housing, as well as integrating heath related studies through collaboration with several Portland State University academic departments.
