Community-friendly Housing Celebrates the Joys of Downsizing
After 25 years of working in the city, long-time Portland resident Pamela Johnson was ready to retire and transition to the next chapter of her life. Transitions can be hard, especially when it involves moving to a new home; but for Pamela, choosing The Canyons apartments as the home that would support her during her retirement years was one that felt right. With children spread across the world, Pamela knew that selecting a home that felt safe, secure, and that would support mobility and independence would bring her and her family peace of mind.
“I just recently moved in and I absolutely love it,” said Ms. Johnson. “For me it was about independence, mobility, and finding a place that gives me a sense of community in the heart of a neighborhood I love. We have a diverse community of all ages and ethnicities here and it reminds me of everything I love about Portland.”
The Canyons is a new six-story multigenerational apartment building designed to foster community and a sense of belonging, while offering residents full independence. “I didn’t need an assisted living center; The Canyons is really a good transition place for me. My car is parked downstairs in the locked garage, I can walk to the grocery store and restaurants, there’s healthcare nearby. Even my children feel better knowing I’m here,” said Ms. Johnson.
The Canyons also offers concierge services to residents and community activities and events. “There’s always something fun to do here, this is a happy place, a joyful place,” said Ms. Johnson. Onsite concierge services include everything from laundry and dry cleaning, meal delivery, reservations and car rental bookings, cooking lessons, to making appointments and arranging activities.
For people looking to downsize, The Canyons offers a unique way to stay in a vibrant urban corridor regardless of age. They can simplify, have the freedom to travel without worrying about leaving a house behind, and enjoy amenities and convenience right at home.
“It’s just such a beautiful place to live. The light flooding in my windows and the views, I can see Mt. Hood in the distance, and I love seeing all the historic homes and the parks,” said Ms. Johnson.
Inside, The Canyons is built with a modern, sustainable design that includes mass timber construction, lots of wood, fresh air and calm, beautiful interiors. Fully ADA-compliant, the building features an open air atrium with fresh air flowing through hallways, a wellness room, central laundry lounge. The Canyons offers all the joys of home without the hassles of ownership. There’s no HOA, no property taxes and no maintenance.
