Lents developers show their stuff to public

Come learn about future redevelopments in the heart of Lents, at an open house with developers hosted by the Portland Development Commission.

The event takes place Tuesday, Oct. 27, from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., at Lents Activity Center, 8835 S.E. Woodstock.

There will be brief presentations, to go along with preliminary designs and plans, from Williams/Dame & Associates, the Asian Health and Service Center and Palindrome Communities Inc. Mayor Charlie Hales, PDC Executive Director Patrick Quinton and Portland House Bureau Assistant Director Javier Mena will give brief presentations.

Palindrome, led by Chad Rennaker, has a purchase agreement to buy the New Copper Penny and the Chevron gas station across the street to the west. He previously stated plans to build $40 million worth of affordable housing, commercial space and parking on those two sites and on PDC’s 1-acre L-shaped site west and south of the gas station.

Homer Williams and Dike Dame hope to build a mix of affordable and market-rate apartments plus ground-floor commercial space and surface parking on PDC’s .6-acre site due north of the Chevron station, on the northwest corner of 92nd and Foster.

The Asian Health & Services Center is proposed on 0.7-acre on 8931 S.E. Foster, two blocks west of the Williams and Dame site. It’s envisioned to include medical clinics, office and community meeting space, and two commercial spaces to be rented at market rate.
