Community celebrates grand reopening of REACH Community Development’s Bronaugh Apartments, historic downtown building serving very-low-income residents. View photos.

Earlier we reported on Housing Development Center’s work assisting REACH Community Development with the renovation of the Bronaugh Apartments. The historic structure in downtown Portland is one of 11 rent-subsidized housing projects that the Portland Housing Bureau targeted in 2008 as being at risk of conversion to market-rate housing. REACH Community Development purchased it in 2013, and HDC worked with REACH, Walsh Construction and Carleton Hart Architecture to plan and manage a major renovation and seismic upgrade.

We’re pleased to report that last month the renovation reached completion on schedule, and residents moved back into safer and more comfortable apartments and a beautifully restored building. Below are snapshots of the grand reopening celebration.

Scroll down for a gallery of Sally Painter’s photos of the renovation results.
