Home Forward, Walsh Construction Co., Salazar Architect Inc. and Holst have recently completed an integrated holistic design-build preservation redevelopment for our Portland community. The completion of the occupied renovations to Medallion Apartments and Williams Plaza provide safe, comfortable, and affordable homes for decades to come – ensuring that current residents and generations of future families will have stable and affordable homes close to public transit and supportive services.
Congratulations to the project team of Gardner House and Allen Family Center for the National Association of Home Builders Best Supportive Services at an Affordable Apartment Community award! The project is an innovative public-private partnership between the Paul G. Allen Family Foundation, city of Seattle and Mercy Housing Northwest to create exceptional services and housing for low-income families and families experiencing homelessness. On the ground floor, the Allen Family Center integrates education, employment resources, childcare and social services through several in-house service providers: Mercy Housing Northwest, ReWA, Child Care Resources and Mary’s Place. The residential portion of the project, Gardner House, includes 95 one-, two- and three-bedroom units of permanently affordable and supportive housing. The transit-oriented development is one block from a light-rail station and is between two major arterials, ensuring residents are easily connected, and don’t feel they need to make a large investment into a vehicle.
Exceptional work on The Mary Ann for REACH CDC, with Scott | Edwards Architecture and Klosh Group, Inc., creating 54 new affordable apartment homes in beautiful Old Town Beaverton!

The Mary Ann will help meet the needs of local families and features 39 parking spaces, a secure bike room, laundry facilities, and a community room open to a large courtyard.
WALSH is proud to support Compass Housing Alliance’s 100-year anniversary happening this spring and culminating in a celebration on May 16th.
