Green Light Expected for Miracles Central

The Portland City Council is expected to next week approve an ordinance to open the way for development of the Miracles Central project at 1306 N.E. Second Ave., according to Portland Housing Bureau spokeswoman Martha Calhoon.

The ordinance will allow the housing bureau to transfer title of the property to Miracles Central Apartments Limited Partnership, an arm of nonprofit Central City Concern. The City Council will consider the ordinance at 10 a.m. during its June 10 meeting.

The $13 million project is being developed by Guardian Real Estate Services as a six-story building with 47 units of low-income housing on the upper five floors. The ground floor will accommodate services for people in recovery from alcohol and drug addiction sponsored by Central City Concern.
