Medallion Apartments

Location: 1969 NW Johnson St. Portland OR 97209

Completed November 2020

Medallion Apartments is a six story public housing community serving low-income persons with disabilities, with 90 one- and two-bedroom units. Renovations to Medallion Apartments were part of Home Forward’s 85 Stories Initiative to preserve their existing portfolio of rent-assisted homes. Renovations were completed simultaneously with Williams Plaza.

Peregrine Relocations facilitated three overlapping phases of relocation:

1) occupied rehabilitations to add seismic upgrades and replace windows

2) full unit renovations requiring temporary relocation to other units within the building for approximately 45 days

3) floor-by-floor relocations of approximately a week to allow for traffic coating of the walkways.

Peregrine relocations handled the packing, moving, and storing of tenant belongings, and found suitable hotels to use as temporary housing during traffic coating of the walkways. Tenants were offered the option of choosing permanent relocation, either to another Home Forward property, or elsewhere with use of a Housing Choice voucher. Peregrine assisted several residents to move permanently.
