Affordable housing project opens in Portland’s West End

Nonprofit Avesta Housing hosted a grand opening Wednesday of its newly developed affordable apartments on Carleton Street.

The development has 37 studio, one- and two-bedroom apartments targeted at or below 40 to 60 percent of the area income.

“It’s wonderful that we’ve been able to respond to the affordable housing crisis that exists here,” Avesta CEO Dana Totman told CBS 13. “To have 37 homes is incredibly important.”
