Greystar Unveils Sawbuck, Its First Project in Portland
Greystar has officially opened Sawbuck, its first development project in Portland, OR. Comprised of 182 apartments and approximately 8,000 square feet of retail space, the project broke ground in July 2019 and welcomed its first tenants September 1. Located at the corner of Southwest 18th Avenue and Southwest Salmon Street in the Goose Hollow neighborhood, Sawbuck is at the base of West Hills and Washington Park.
Sawbuck’s studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom residences start at approximately $1,500 per month.
“This project didn’t happen overnight. We’ve spent the last few years immersed in the local Oregon community, prospecting and deeply engaging with local businesses and residents,” said Doug Burges, director of development at Greystar.
