Milepost 5 is an LIHTC affordable community for creatives of all kinds. In non-pandemic times, we offer ample common space to residents and visitors for art shows, plays, readings, and whatever endeavors you can imagine. We’re located near the Montavilla district, just across the street from Montavilla Park, and less than a mile from local hits like Bipartisan Cafe and Motherloving Coffee.
Income restrictions apply and are determined via the Portland Housing Bureau’s guide for 60% of the area median income.
While about half of the units feature their own bathroom en suite, the other half of the units have dorm-style bathrooms located throughout the building. The units all have shared kitchens, which are located on both the second and third floors. Most residents keep a mini-fridge inside their apartments.
The building has a laundry room with coin-operated machines, a workshop for working on small projects, galleries, and community gardens. Public transportation is readily available by light rail or many bus lines.
