Tree-lined streets, peaceful parks and gracious Northwest-inspired dwellings energize the community. The project involved complete removal, deconstruction and/or demolition of the existing infrastructure and 10 residential buildings. New roadway construction was part of the project. Thirteen new two- and three-story buildings feature a combination of flats and townhouses.
Humboldt Gardens transformed the former Iris Court housing development in Northeast Portland into a mix of 130 apartments, a Neighborhood Network Center, Head Start Center, Community Policing contact office, and a management office.
