This Fall, local developer Urban Development + Partners announced plans to build a new cohousing community in Northwest Portland. The proposed project, Flanders Cohousing, will be located on NW Flanders Street, near the intersection of NW 23rd Avenue. Northwest Portland is recognized as one of Portland's most walkable urban neighborhoods, with a Walk Score of 92, excellent transit and bike accessibility, and a wide range of restaurants, retail shops, grocery stores, breweries and other popular destinations. Flanders Cohousing will feature 21 for sale residential units, underground parking and common amenities chosen by member owners.

As part of the Design Advice Request (D.A.R.) process, UD+P presented the Flanders Cohousing preliminary site plan and renderings designed by architect Works Progress Architecture to the Historic Landmarks Commission in November. The project was well received. We will publish updates on the status of Flanders Cohousing in future issues of our cohousing e-newsletter.
