It was a beautiful day to celebrate two open houses with Housing Works! R&H team members and project partners visited Ponderosa Heights Apartments in Sisters and Hawks View Estates in La Pine as they officially celebrated their grand openings. The two properties contribute 90 affordable apartments to low-income households in Central Oregon.

Ponderosa Heights in Sisters, Oregon offers 48 affordable housing units for households at or below 60% area median income (AMI). The units are spread across six buildings and include one, two, and three-bedroom apartments. The project also includes a community center and resident amenities. The site is located on north Brooks Camp Road behind Ray’s Shopping Center close to schools, stores, services, employment opportunities, and transportation.

Hawks View Estates located in La Pine, Oregon consists of 42 one, two, and three-bedroom affordable housing apartments within nine two-story buildings. This housing development marks the first affordable rental community for low-income families in La Pine. The townhomes are built on a 2.7-acre parcel donated by Deschutes County and is located south of Memorial Lane and east of Little Deschutes Lane, in the center of resources such as schools, parks, medical facilities, social services, and the main highway.
