Mountain Laurel Lodge
Our First Project.
Mountain Laurel Lodge (MLL) was completed in 2006 and has been 100% occupied for over 10 years. It provides an independent rental apartment for over 55 seniors on Bend's west side, en route to the Cascade Lakes.
Pacific Crest's first project is reserved for households earning 60% of Area Median Income (AMI); the rental rates are fixed to be affordable for 40-50% of AMI and will remain as such for the next 60 years.
MLL was created in collaboration with the Low-Income Housing Tax Credit Program, US Dept. of Housing and Urban Development (HOME), Oregon Department of Housing and Community Services, the City of Bend, and the Bend - LaPine School District.
Sustainability in action
Using the following features, MLL's environmentally sustainable design and construction meet and exceed the Portland Development Commission’s “Green” Affordable Housing Development Guidelines:
o Solar heated common area water
o 18.3 kW solar array for generating electricity
o R50 ceiling insulation
o EnergyStar appliances and light fixtures throughout
o Native, drought tolerant landscaping
