Orchards at Orenco Featured in Daily Journal of Commerce6.23.15
On June 19, 2015, the Portland Daily Journal of Commerce wrote a great article about Orchards at Orenco, a 57-unit affordable housing project owned and developed by REACH Community Development that is the largest multifamily passive house building in the country. Green Hammer was the Passive House consultant for the project, which was built by Walsh Construction.
"In addition to filling a much-needed housing gap for those who earn 50 percent or less of median income for Washington County, where the project is located, pursuing an actual passive house project has given REACH a foundation for creating highly energy-efficient buildings that the organization will be able to implement on future affordable housing projects throughout the Portland metro area, according to Laura Recko, REACH’s director of fundraising and public relations," said the article.
