The Glisan Commons Building
Glisan Commons is a mixed-use building in the Gateway neighborhood that will bring 67 units of new affordable housing and 16,000 square feet of new commercial space to an area city leaders have slated for future growth. Human Solutions and Ride Connection are partners on the Glisan Commons project, located at NE Glisan and NE 100th Avenue. The project was designed by Holst Architecture, and the general contractor is R&H/Colas Construction. Currently under construction, the project is slated for completion in December 2013.
Glisan Commons will connect working families to affordable housing in a neighborhood that offers excellent transit options and access to jobs. City leaders cite the project as a great example of how nonprofits like Human Solutions and Ride Connection can work together to provide housing opportunity and to promote economic growth that benefits the whole community. A combination of public and private sources, including the Portland Housing Bureau, Bank of America, Oregon Housing and Community Services, ODOT, TriMet, and Network for Oregon Affordable Housing are providing the funding for Glisan Common
The project, which aspires to a LEED for HOMES Platinum designation upon completion, includes a new 16,000-square-foot headquarters for Ride Connection, bringing 40 – and eventually up to 60 – new employees to the Gateway neighborhood, and 67 units of affordable workforce housing that will provide new energy efficient, well-managed, transit-oriented homes to residents earning 50 percent or below of Area Median Income. Human Solutions is committed not only to providing affordable housing but also to promoting economic development in the neighborhoods in which we work, and this building exemplifies that goal.
