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."
...continues at the Oregonian.

72Foster breaks ground

REACH Community Development digs into Lents to build an intergenerational mixed-use building



The Lents Town Center urban renewal area is already stimulating more developments outside its original plans for the neighborhood's main drag.

The groundbreaking for 72Foster, a REACH Community Development project located at 7238 S.E. Foster Rd., was held last week on Thursday, Sept. 21.

72Foster will be an intergenerational, mixed-use building, creating 101 permanently affordable housing (some affordable deals with the City, State or Prosper Portland can expire) serving both seniors and families, with apartment sizes ranging from studios to three bedrooms.

The project is estimated to cost $24 million. Lucy Corbett, housing development project manager with REACH, attended the groundbreaking that featured speakers from the various funding partners.

Not sure the proper thread for this. The mayor is considering incentives to make inclusionary housing more appealing to developers. The Mercury article included a list of 20+ unit projects primarily in SE.
