The new $52.8 million Stephens Creek Crossing is adding more diversity to Southwest Portland's demographics. The reconstructed multifamily development on the edge of the Multnomah and Hillsdale neighborhoods is a combination low-income and public housing community that replaces a development plagued by mold and other problems.

"This is going to be an incredible place to live," said Steve Rudman, Portland's Home Forward executive director, at the project's June 6 completion ceremony. "It's really a culmination of Hope VI — it's not the largest (of the three projects), but in many ways it has the greatest potential."
