Project Description

COLONIA PAZ FARMWORKER HOUSING

Connecting Culture and Community

Lebanon is an agricultural community with nearly 20,000 residents. FHDC asked Pinnacle to help them plan a multi-phase affordable housing development to support the community’s needs. The master plan is for 134 homes and designed around a wetland. The surrounding area is a mix of commercial and residential and is situated near schools and social service providers. The design reflects Lebanon’s culture and 2040 vision, “optimism for a bright future.”

During planning for Colonia Paz, it was important for the design to connect with the Hispanic residents. A Portland Hispanic artist was retained to create a mural to pay tribute to the hard-working women and men that make it possible for us to have food on our tables during the pandemic. The flowers symbolize the well-being and gift of life that the workers’ labor brings into our everyday lives, and the butterflies symbolize the lives fallen during the pandemic. The worker standing in PPP is a symbol of resiliency and strength.

Phase I includes 1 building with 24 units and broke ground May 13, 2021. Phase II will include two buildings with 116 additional homes.
