PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

A new apartment complex in Portland is promising affordable housing for 33 families.

Portland Habilitation Center Northwest celebrated the grand opening of the Fern Grove Apartments at 14232 E. Burnside St. on Thursday.

The complex is comprised of 33 three-bedroom units and was designed in partnership with Home First Development.

The units are designed for three to seven people and feature Energy Star appliances and granite counter tops. The complex includes a community center, sport court and playground.

The complex is in the Reynolds School District.

"I'm actually very excited," said new tenant Nicholas Swearingen. "My family of six needs a place to move and three bedrooms works great."

According to the PHC Northwest website, rent is $1,007 per month. Applicants are screened for credit, rental history, property and utility debt and criminal history.

Household income must be at least 1 ½ times the amount of the monthly rent and cannot exceed 60 percent of the area median income.

PHC Northwest owns and manages nearly 700 total units in the Portland area, Albany and The Dalles.
