The Team


the developer:
Orange Splot, LLC

Eli Spevak has been at the forefront of affordable housing options since developing Peninsula Park Commons over a decade ago. Since then he has had a hand in helping create seven other small, affordable communities in Portland, and one in Corvallis.

The Mason Street Townhomes development will not only add more mid-range housing options for buyers, Orange Splot, LLC will also be working with Proud Ground and the City of Portland to make 3 of these homes permanently affordable to homebuyers at 80% of Median Family Income. Through what they call “voluntary inclusionary zoning,” Orange Splot LLC will be contributing at least $50K per affordable unit.



The architects:

Communitecture designs beautiful and sustainable places that bring people together in community.  With an approach that explores new creative territories, they remain as accessible as possible.  They are absolutely committed to sustainability, while respecting the needs and priorities of all the individuals, families, and communities with whom they work and play.

Communitecture is a full service design firm for commercial and residential projects, typically leading projects from the conceptual design stage through construction.  They believe in making our services accessible to projects which push the envelope in terms of ecological design or community building.
