CCC Westwind Apartments
Dec 19, 2019
Works Progress Architecture (W.PA) and Architecture Building Culture (ABC) are incredibly excited to be collaborating with Central City Concern on a new affordable, supportive housing project in the heart of Old Town. The W.PA/ABC team includes DCI Engineers (structural), PAE (MEP), Vega Civil Engineers (civil), and WerkSTADT (landscape). Walsh Construction is the general contractor.
The project will replace the existing Westwind Apartments building with 100 new units of deeply affordable SRO and studio housing, combined with extensive supportive services and amenities, and immediate access to Central City Concern’s (CCC) network of medical and social services throughout Old Town. The interior programming will deliver (72) seventy-two efficient Single Room Occupancy (SRO) and (28) twenty-eight studio units, with ample shared amenities and gathering space to elevate community interaction for residents and supportive services staff in the building. The majority of residents will be individuals transitioning from homelessness and experiencing a disabling condition. The project further prioritizes communities who are overrepresented in Portland’s homeless population through service partnerships and CCC’s culturally specific programming.
