Affordable Housing Development Portfolio Rehabilitation
The Housing Authority of Washington County (HAWC) is embarking on a rehabilitation of its portfolio of ten buildings which make up over 500 units around the County. HAWC understands that these affordable housing properties are an important community resource. Over the course of the upcoming years, HAWC will be working with its development consultant to upgrade the exteriors and interiors of the buildings. This will allow HAWC to ensure the long-term viability of this portfolio. This work will be wide ranging and staff will be working with residents on this plan. Not all buildings will be receiving immediate rehab as it sometimes takes months and years to get the financing in place and then develop a scope of work and get the construction company in place.
The first four buildings that are part of the rehab plan are Bonita Villa, Parkside, Villager and Aloha Park. HAWC will be working with our development consultants, investors and construction partners to complete up to $25 million dollars in rehab at these four sites. HAWC is working with our development consultants on the financing and scope of work for a fifth building in Tigard which will also include the renaming and rebranding of that site. Once the construction commences on these five sites, HAWC will continue to work with our development consultant on a financing and construction plan for the remaining sites.
Residents with questions about the renovation efforts for these properties can reach Washington County staff by sending an e-mail to HAWC4@co.washington.or.us.
We are excited to provide a high level overview of the Scope of Work that will be completed at all of these properties. Please keep in mind that funding must be approved and permits must be obtained before this construction will take place.
