Congressman Blumenauer celebrated the grand opening of new student housing at Portland State University this week. The recently completed LEED certified building called University Pointe opened this fall to students and has leased all its units. University Pointe is a 6-story apartment building that will house 978 students public-private development project between American Campus Communities and Portland State University. It has been cost neutral for the school while giving a strong boost to its near-campus housing.
“It is great to see PSU, our world class university, continuing to expand.” Said Blumenauer. “This project brings much needed, energy efficient, student housing to PSU and has used a proven public-private development model to do it.”
