Mayor Sam Adams, Metro president Tom Hughes, City Commissioner Nick Fish and neighborhood representatives will join the Portland Development Commission and Winkler Development on Monday, October 17 at 9:00 a.m. to celebrate the opening of Killingsworth Station, a mixed-use building that offers special incentives for lower-income buyers.
The LEED Platinum project at 1455 North Killingsworth Street in the Interstate Corridor Urban Renewal Area has 57 one and two-bedroom condominium homes, and more than 9,000 square feet of ground floor retail space. Down payment assistance loans are available for income-eligible, first-time homebuyers.
“On top of great design, green building features, a convenient location, business opportunities, and the chance to own your own space, K-Station has put more than 80 people to work in construction jobs and apprenticeships for women and minorities,” Mayor Sam Adams said. “Now that’s something to celebrate.”
“We’re excited to offer this sustainable, affordable opportunity to our buyers,” said Winkler Development president Jim Winkler. “K-Station offers solar-thermal hot water, energy efficient appliances, green roofs, on-site storm water management, responsibly sourced bamboo hardwood floors, sound-treated windows, bike racks on every floor, and light rail and bus service right outside your door.”
R&H Construction is the general contractor. Vallaster and Corl Associates designed the project.
Willamette Realty Group, led by principal broker Ben Andrews, is marketing the residential project. Urban Works Real Estate, led by Charlotte Larson and Kia Hartley, market the commercial condominium retail space. For more information, please visit KillingsworthStation.com.
