Housing -- Oregon -- Portland Metropolitan Area, Multifamily housing -- Oregon -- Portland Metropolitan Area, Home ownership -- Oregon -- Portland
In this edition of the Periodic Atlas, we provide a glimpse of housing construction that has been permitted over the past few years, with a focus on multifamily housing. Focusing on recently-permitted units provides a perspective on how the newest housing is and will be different from existing housing. The type of housing that will be built, where it is built, its characteristics, and its price will shape the Portland region in the years to come.
