Jones Architecture is working with Reach Community Development on the modernization and upgrade of their property in SE Portland. The Rose Apartments serves the unique function of providing affordable and secure housing for single, previously homeless women. Constructed in 1910, this unreinforced masonry structure is organized around a central courtyard and contains three stories and a partial basement. The project includes a full seismic upgrade, a complete update to interior and exterior finishes, and new MEP systems. The ground story is being reconfigured to be more open and flexible, allowing space for communal gathering. The building is slated to be placed on the National Historic Register, as such the exterior work is focused on maintenance, repair, lighting, and finish updates that are in keeping with the historic nature of the building. Prior to design, Jones completed a Capital Needs Assessment to assist the client in securing funding for the project.
