Gladstone Square Apartments is a 48-unit affordable housing renovation project for Home Forward on 1.8 acres in SE Portland. The primary occupants of this apartment complex are large families with many of the units being 3-4 bedrooms. Gladstone apartments feature a new courtyard that has a playground to accommodate all ages and a picnic area with a BBQ and picnic table seating. The courtyard was designed with a series of seat walls allowing parents to watch their children play from the comfort of the edge of the playground or while eating at the raised patio picnic area. The two images at the bottom of the page show how drastically the renovation reworked the space. The bottom left image shows before the renovation and the right image shows after.
