Emmons Place Groundbreaking


Emmons Place – 146 units, estimated completion Spring 2023
Located in Portland’s immensely walkable Northwest neighborhood, NHA began construction on 146 studio units in a complex rehab/new construction project in July 2021. The building is named for Portland affordable housing advocate Susan Emmons who, as past executive director of NW Pilot Project, has been a passionate and determined voice to preserve and add affordable housing in Portland’s downtown neighborhoods.  In lieu of holding a groundbreaking event, we created this video to share more about Emmons Place and Susan’s work.

  1. This is amazing! I have a friend who is 74 and needs to find affordable housing. How do you determine who will live in these 146 units. Can she apply or what is the process?
