La Pine, OR. Housing Works is excited to announce the grand opening of a new affordable property in La Pine. On Friday, April 12th, beginning at 2PM, Housing Works staff will gather with partners, sponsors, government representatives and community members to celebrate the grand opening of Hawks View Estates in La Pine. Hawks View Estates provides 42 affordable apartments with a mix of one-, two- and three bedroom units. The new community is located on Little Deschutes Lane, just north of Bi-Mart. The affordable property is income-restricted to households making at or below 60% of the area median income with rents starting at $596.
Housing Works’ Executive Director David Brandt states, “As the affordable housing crisis in Central Oregon broadens and deepens, the urgent need to provide affordable options in our smaller towns has become more compelling. These new homes will provide some relief for 42 low-income households in La Pine that are struggling with rising rental costs.”
Hawks View Estates is made up of 9 two-story, craftsman-style buildings on a 2.5 acre parcel. The property includes a community building with rental office, play area and landscaped courtyard. The waiting list for the property, managed by EPIC Property Management, is now closed, and all 42 apartments are leased up and occupied.
The grand opening event will include speakers from state and local governments and financial partners. After a ceremonial ribbon cutting, guests will be invited to tour the property and enjoy light refreshments. Members of the public are welcome to attend the event.
In addition to Housing Works, the development team included general contractor R&H Construction, architect Doug Circosta, investor PNC Real Estate, lender Washington Federal and property manager EPIC. Hawks View Estates was constructed using funds from Oregon Housing and Community Services LIFT Housing Program, 4% low income housing tax credits (LIHTC) and Housing Development Grant Program funds. Deschutes County donated the land for the affordable housing development.
