Emmons Place Senior Housing

Once complete, Emmons Place Senior Housing will add more than 70,000 sf of affordable senior housing to Portland’s historic Alphabet District. The project consists of an adaptive reuse renovation of a historic three-story structure with new construction of two buildings with wood framing over post-tensioned concrete slabs. The six- and five-story buildings, designed by Carleton Hart Architecture, flank the existing building. After supporting the existing structure, micro piles were installed to tie-in the building to a reinforced and seismically sound foundation. The project adds 148 units with resident services and is aiming to achieve Earth Advantage Certification. The client’s 30% DMWESB utilization goal is at 40.3%.
