After four years of planning, building and growing, PDX Commons is full! We are thrilled to have completed our community and moved into our beautiful new building at 4262 SE Belmont St. in Portland, OR. It’s been almost six months now, and we are practicing and enjoying community living.

PDX COMMONS: AN INTENTIONAL COMMUNITY OF PROACTIVE ADULTS
Our community is built on the principles of cohousing: private homes plus many shared facilities for socializing, meals, and taking care of community business together.
We are 39 adults ranging in age from mid-50s to late-70s. About half of our households consist of couples and the other half singles. While we are an adult community, it’s common to see adult children and grandchildren visiting our homes.
We worked with a development team and general contractor to design and construct our building. We are the owners, and we run the community ourselves. We make decisions using a consensus model, which allows every voice to be heard.
Our beautiful facility has easy access to transit, parks, shops, restaurants and grocery stores. We practice sustainable living and are committed to decreasing our footprint on the planet.
PDX Commons is a designated 55+ community under the Housing for Older Persons Act (HOPA) in accordance with CFR § 100.304.
