Gilman Court is a 60-unit affordable housing complex in NE Portland. The six story building is a two phase mixed use development in partnership with Human Solutions, Ride Connection, and REACH Community Development. In Phase II the project includes one bedroom units for seniors and community amenity spaces, and joins the Phase I courtyard expansion. The design focuses on connection to both the natural environment and community. The expansion of the outdoor courtyard provides a centrally focused, shared plaza and small seating among landscape niches. In the courtyard a generous pathway connects the residents to 99 NE Avenue while providing a public pedestrian corridor.
