The property is currently being built from the ground-up specifically for coliving- the first of its kind in Portland! It has 26 bedrooms across four separate structures connected by exterior courtyards. The existing house being fully renovated and 3 new homes are being built. Each of the new buildings has its own kitchen and 7 bedrooms with private bathrooms. The main house has 5 bedrooms, a larger kitchen and living space, and will be the hub of the overall community.
The property has an array of shared, furnished common spaces including communal kitchens, living rooms, dens, bike storage, and laundry room. Upper bedrooms will include a loft for extra space and amazing views of the area.
It is in North Portland, one block off of Mississippi Avenue, right behind Pistol’s Nursery. Check it out on Google Maps.
OpenDoor exists to enable people to live with greater connection, creativity and purpose. We have run coliving homes in Oakland, CA since 2013 and are excited to be sharing our community housing model in Portland. We believe living in community can support us living happy, healthier lives – from community dinners and living room jam sessions, to quiet conversations over tea, making new friends, and growing together as people. Our founders have roots in the PNW, having lived in Portland, Olympia and Seattle before moving to the Bay Area to start OpenDoor.
We are actively recruiting core community founders – unique people we call “catalysts.” Once we find the catalyst team, we then support, train, and collaborate with them to develop the house vision, market the home, design house systems, and develop community agreements.
If you or someone you know think they would be a good fit as a catalyst for this property, please fill out the interest form below. To learn more about the catalyst role, check out opendoor.io/catalyze.
Due to the nature of construction, we are looking for folks with flexible move-in dates over late summer and early fall.
