The Amy

Formerly a 30-unit student apartment building located blocks from Portland State University Campus, The Amy is being developed by College Housing Northwest into five floors of modern, affordable student housing with a wide range of amenities and support services. With this redevelopment, CHNW seeks to expand on its mission of providing housing that fosters academic and personal development.

The project is set to open Spring 2019.

Project Overview

The Amy will be a state of the art, $20 million dollar project with 141 studio units in over 75,000 square feet of independent student housing. Located blocks from campus at the foot of the Portland’s Southwest hills, this unique site provides views of downtown Portland and includes over 3,000 square feet of community space for residents to engage in. 35 parking spaces and 230 bike parking stalls will be provided in a secure garage below the building.
