Portland to tear down SE Portland strip club to build affordable housing

Those seeking adult entertainment in Portland will soon have one less destination in the city known nationally for its many strip clubs.

The city of Portland will buy the property occupied by the Safari Showclub, tear down the club and build 200 to 300 affordable apartments.

The City Council on Wednesday unanimously approved spending $3.7 million on the 50,000-square foot property on Southeast Powell Boulevard at Southeast 30th Avenue. Commissioner Nick Fish was absent.

The city will close the deal September 30, when the strip club will have to cease operations.

"Ultimately to address our affordability crisis, we have to use all the tools available," Mayor Ted Wheeler said. "This is one example of how we can move forward."

"Maybe to an architect, they might look suspicious, but to me, they just look like rocks"
