Owner: Central City Concern

Location: Portland, Oregon

Category D: Unbuilt: must be commissioned for compensation by a client with the authority and intention to build


Eastside Health Center is a six-story building with a healthcare facility, retail, 34 transitional housing studios, 10 palliative care rooms, 118 SROs, and 12 respite care beds. Central City Concern will provide comprehensive case management and clinical services to support stabilization for rebuilding lives. Our concept explores the importance of ‘feeling at home’ and creating a sense of comfort, community, uplift and safety. The building was envisioned as a home for health and recovery, utilizing the referential gable that symbolizes the essence of home that happens to have a clinic.

"The scale of the building is human providing spaces that emphasize recovery over warehousing." ~ Jury statement
