The Watershed at Hillsdale
Located at 6388 SW Capitol Highway, Portland OR 97239
The Watershed is a transit-oriented, mixed-use development in the heart of the Hillsdale Town Center in Southwest Portland.
The building includes 51 units of affordable rental housing for seniors (55+), with eight units set aside for formerly homeless Veterans. CPAH’s administrative offices are located in The Watershed building, along with community event space.
The Hillsdale neighborhood was involved in and supportive of the Watershed project from its early stages in 2001. Neighborhood and business leaders participated in naming the building, and they have raised funds for lighting the sign and the tower and installing a public water fountain. Additionally, several community groups frequently hold meetings in The Watershed’s 2,000-square-foot community center.
The Watershed building has received a LEED silver rating, incorporating green-building techniques and building materials, including a high-efficiency central hot water boiler, durable building envelope materials, high energy conserving windows, and an innovative heat-recovering ventilation system. Storm water is detained onsite and is naturally pre-treated to help maintain water quality in the Stephens Creek and Fanno Creek watersheds.
