In September, Housing Works and community leaders broke ground on the 24 unit apartment complex, Canyon East.
Housing Works and Community And Shelter Assistance Corporation of Oregon (CASA) teamed up to develop the Madras project to be built on a 1.83 acre site owned by Housing Works. The design calls for 2, 3, and 4 bedroom units along with a community building featuring meeting space, laundry facility and on-site management offices. A playground and basketball half-court are also planned.
The site is located in a neighborhood that is being redeveloped through a unique partnership between Housing Works, the City of Madras and Jefferson County. It is close to shopping, recreation, services and downtown Madras.
Canyon East is expected to be complete in late summer 2011.
