Late this summer, The Miracles Club and Central City Concern will celebrate the opening of Miracles Central Apartments, a new affordable housing apartment building located near the Rose Quarter.
The two groups have worked for the past few years on the project that will bring affordable housing and services to adults and families who wish to live in an alcohol and drug-free building.
Miracles Central Apartments is based on the Miracles Club Apartments, a similar building on Northeast Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, specializing in culturally competent recovery support for the African American community.
The new apartments will consist of 47 units of affordable housing, including 28 apartments affordable to lower-income households earning up to 50 percent of the area median income (approximately $25,750 for an individual).
Families will also be welcomed as tenants. The building’s ground floor will be available for program-related services, including meetings and counseling. On-site staff will help tenants with life-skills, employment readiness, and eviction prevention, and work closely with tenants to develop action plans that may include steps like workforce development or education.
The Portland Housing Bureau dedicated $7.1 million in capital funding toward the building. Other major funders include Oregon Housing & Community Services, National Equity Fund and JP Morgan Chase. Multicultural Development Group is the project developer with Guardian Real Estate Services LLC leading the project, Carleton Hart Architecture is the lead architect and LMC Construction is the general contractor.
