Woodsong Property Renovation Partners, LLC has chosen the Woodlawn neighborhood as a target market for several reasons: Dekum Triangle is currently blossoming as one of the most vibrant pocket neighborhoods in Portland, featuring numerous restaurants, cafes, and other destinations within a very short walk. Multiple frequent service transit lines are within a two block walk, featuring connecting service directly to all of the MAX lines in the region, and to downtown. The famed Williams/Vancouver bicycle corridor is just a few blocks away, providing easy, high-quality bicycle access to downtown.
The award-winning Breakside Brewery, the Oregon Public House (the nation’s first not-for-profit pub), the Grand Army Tavern, the Firehouse Restaurant, Woodlawn Coffee & Pastry, and Good Neighbor Pizzeria are all located within a two-minute walk around Dekum Triangle. A short walk or bike ride further up Dekum Street are P’s & Q’s Market, Tamale Boy, Bassotto Gelateria Café, and the Hi Wheel Wine & Mead Co. The location is very close to many other popular destinations in inner North/Northeast Portland, including the Alberta Arts District just to the south.
Now complete as of August 2017, the structure is two-and-a-half stories above a daylight basement, approximately 24’ wide by 55’ deep. It houses four unique, variably priced, independent flats, ranging in size from two to three bedrooms, with modern interior amenities and open floor plans.
The architecture has retained the Queen Anne Victorian vernacular style of the original structure, preserving the historic elements, including: the front porch, attic dormers, intricate exterior woodwork, and other period details that add to the building’s status as a contributing property in the Woodlawn Historic Conservation District.
Each unit offers ample natural light, high-ceilinged and spacious living areas, private outdoor space in the form of balconies or patios as well as a common yard and green space, access to a secure and detached bicycle garage and a common utility and storage room area.

Project Location: ‘Heart of Foster’ / Mt. Scott-Arleta Neighborhood
Project Name: The Citizen Flats Condominiums
Summary: Existing 1906 Craftsman home transformed into four condominium units, one flat per floor. Original architectural style and integrity preserved and new square footage added within original footprint by raising structure. Outdoor space conserved for kids, pets, gardening and recreation.
Woodsong Property Renovation Partners, LLC has chosen the Mt. Scott-Arleta neighborhood as a target market for several reasons: it is close to the popular “Heart of Foster” area; Foster Road has frequent bus service that continues to the popular Hawthorne Blvd area on its way downtown; Foster is slated to receive a “road diet” later this year that will add bicycle lanes in each direction, as well as other improvements including enhanced crosswalks; the retail district on Foster is up-and-coming, with ample opportunities for future development in the area.

It will house four dwelling units, ranging in size from one to three bedrooms.
