Mayor Ted Wheeler unveiled the next project to be purchased with the city's affordable housing bond on Tuesday — a 51-unit apartment building nearing completion at 105th and East Burnside.

"The Portland Housing Bureau had a rare opportunity to purchase the project and convert it to affordable housing before it went up for sale," Wheeler said at a June 5 afternoon press conference at the building, adding that it is expected to house 167 people by this summer, including families currently living in homeless shelters.
