Jarrett Street 12

Architect: Architecture Building Culture

Owner: Lloyd Development

Location: Portland, Oregon

Category: Up to $1.5 million in construction cost (category two)

The Jarrett Street 12 is located in north Portland along the MAX light rail line. The project is a 7,200 sf, 12-unit affordable housing project. The units were all offered at below market prices through the City of Portland SDC Exemption Program that assists developers by reducing their development costs in exchange for building affordable, for sale, residential housing. The simple massing is a response to the site and zoning constraints. The overall site area is a mere 3,900 sf. The building is comprised of three 2,538 sf floors with 4 units on each floor. In addition to the highly efficient planning, the project utilized modular construction which reduced construction time and budget. The building's design is marked by an overlapping cladding detail that gives a subtle stratified appearance to the building’s massing. The result is an innovative development that helps address the city's affordable housing crises.
