HAP wins federal funds to rebuild the former Iris Court development

Fresh from an apparently successful run at New Columbia, the Housing Authority of Portland is embarking on a new redevelopment project.


The 60-year-old, 101-unit public housing complex formerly known as "Iris Court," and now called "Humboldt Gardens," will undergo a transformation from one-and two-bedroom low-income apartments in four buildings to a modern development containing 129 units for single parents with children, families and the disabled with very low to moderate incomes. A Head Start center and police contact and management offices also may be located on the site.
