Alberta Court Rehabilitation (2011)

May 20, 2011 · by pcriadmin · Rehabilitations

The exterior of this 8-unit complex retained its 1949-era charm, but the dated mid-century kitchen layout and ineffective ventilation systems were ripe for an upgrade.  Like the Woolsey and Drummond rehabilitations, work in this complex was funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (aka stimulus) through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and Portland Housing Bureau, creating jobs as well as improving PCRI’s affordable rental housing.

Kitchens in each of the units were completely renovated, adding storage space, functionality and ventilation.  New, full-size Energy Star-rated refrigerators replaced compact units necessitated by the original layouts.  Bathrooms were also upgraded with new motion-sensing vent fans and replacement bathtub surrounds.  WaterSense-rated bathroom fixtures, installed in 2010 through a grant provided by Portland Water Bureau, were re-installed in the updated bathrooms.  Outside, replacement of deteriorated sidewalk sections and a retaining wall were also part of the rehabilitation.
