Orchards at Orenco will be a landmark development for REACH Community Development and the Passive House movement.
In 2013, REACH purchased a 6-acre site next to the MAX light-right station at Orenco Station in Hillsboro, Ore., near Portland. “Our vision was to build three multifamily buildings on the land,” says Laura Recko, director of fundraising and public relations. “We always had the vision that at least one of the buildings would be a Passive House project.”
