Pearl Place II

The second phase of Avesta Housing’s Pearl Place project introduces 54 new apartments to Portland’s emerging Bayside district. Partnering with Avesta Housing, CHA architects helped design this urban enclave within walking distance of schools, parks, food markets, shopping, city hall, the public library, and the University of Southern Maine.

Offering one-, two-, and three-bedroom units for qualifying families, residences provide access to free wifi, on-site laundry, and a community room with a kitchen. This project has received LEED Platinum Certification under the LEED for Homes Multifamily Midrise program for its energy- and water-saving features such as solar domestic hot water, no landscape irrigation, rain garden, and high-performance building components.

These new, affordable apartments signify the culmination of a nearly decade-long effort to rejuvenate Portland’s Bayside neighborhood with a thriving downtown community.
