The bustling North Williams neighborhood.

Downsizing from a big house to a two bedroom can be daunting, but for longtime Portland resident, Jim Bogan, moving to the top floor of The Canyons is a happy, life-enhancing decision. After his wife passed away, Jim found it difficult to maintain a large house, but he didn’t want to leave the neighborhood he loved. The Canyons was the ideal solution.

Nestled in the heart of North Portland, The Canyons introduces a new way of life with easy barrier-free accessibility, a renewable wood urban aesthetic, and modern amenities in the heart of a well-loved community.

Jim was the first to sign a lease at The Canyons and he chose the largest apartment on the sixth floor. “I love the top floor. I like that The Canyons is for everyone, there’s no age restriction, and there’s a full-time concierge, so if you need anything, there’s always someone there.

Jim Bogan lived alone in a house that was too big to maintain on his own, but he didn’t want to leave his North Portland neighborhood.

An avid jazz fan, Jim enjoys listening to his favorites while gazing out at the cityscape from his living room. “There’s just something about jazz, you know. Life is like jazz, you just make it up as you go. And now, I’m here in this beautiful place.”

Health and wellness features are designed into the green building, with secured entry, an open air atrium that flows fresh air to each apartment, and individual HVAC units with no shared ducts. Open-plan living spaces are designed for 100% ADA-compliant accessibility and comfort to support an active, healthy lifestyle.

This open-air atrium is covered but open on the sides to let fresh air circulate.

The Canyons feature a modern, sustainable design, including efficiency-forward appliances and high, wooden ceilings. The building’s mass timber construction produces a carbon offset equivalent to nearly 800 fewer cars on the road annually, and studies show that living with wood lowers stress, increases productivity and improves feelings of well-being.

“I love the high wood ceilings, the open spaces and the beautiful concept. I believe people will be happy here. It’s location is close to everything, good transportation, restaurants, shops. It really is a beautiful place.”

The apartments are much larger than average, and have ample natural light.

The Canyons offers all the joys of home without the hassles of ownership. There’s no HOA, no property taxes and no maintenance.

“It’s a wonderful place to call home.”
