The Orchards at Orenco
100+ units, new construction
REACH has completed a purchase agreement for a 6.2 parcel near the Orenco MAX light rail station in HIllsboro, OR. This is sufficient to support the phased development of approximately 160 units of housing. Work is underway to design and secure financing for the first phase, a 57 unit, transit-oriented housing project for lower-wage workers in the Orenco neighborhood. The apartments will be located near the Orenco MAX station and built using “Passive House” energy efficient standards, a method of construction that reduces heating bills by up to ninety percent. When complete, the Orchards at Orenco will be the largest multi-family Passive House building in the United States. For more information, read our Quick Facts profile.
