Franklin Ide is a mixed-use residential apartment development that replaces one of the few remaining undeveloped surface parking lots in the NW 23rd neighborhood, one of Portland’s most vibrant and architecturally, culturally, and functionally diverse districts.

The project includes a mix of two-bedroom, one-bedroom and studio-loft market rate apartments, leasing center, and over 2,000 sf of retail space. The six-story building also includes a Club Room for residents, underground parking, and landscaped courtyards on the front and rear of the building. A 90’ x 15’ wide elevated and landscaped storm-water planter will contain and treat 100% of the building rainwater runoff.

Franklin Ide provides a contemporary living environment.  Interiors are open and loft-like with full height windows and wood floors throughout. Bay windows front the development for views up and down NW Lovejoy Street and balconies and terraces are provided on the rear south side.
