Kaiser Trio


Goal: Rehabilitate three properties and expand amenities and programming to foster a sense of community and pride of place for residents.

The Kaiser project entails the acquisition and rehabilitation of an existing HUD-assisted portfolio of three properties located in Albany and Corvallis, Oregon. The apartments, currently known as Hillhouse, Santiam Terrace, and Walnut Court, were built between 1970-1973 as HUD projects and comprise a total of 120 units in 27 buildings on a combined 5.44 acres.

The rehab will improve energy efficiency and address major capital items in order to preserve this important housing asset for its remaining life under the HUD assisted housing program. The landscaping will be partially replaced with native plants that attract pollinators as well as perennial edible fruit bushes and trees. Common area amenities and programming will be expanded to promote community and a high quality of life for residents.


The project financing includes tax exempt bonds issued by the Oregon Housing and Community Services Department (OHCS) and equity from the sale of non-competitive 4% Low Income Housing Tax Credits. The project will also entail Low Income Weatherization funds.
