Some like it hot

The "affordable housing" that's about to go into the SoWhat District won't have air conditioning.

No AC and the units will have individual heaters?
Probably those noisy wall units motels and hotels have.
I saw those in some condos in Sherwood.

That over under breathing nonsense for air in the summer is bunk. If there's no cross venitlation I pitty the fools,,,, tenents.

209 units and only 50 parking spaces?

More smart growth

I wonder who gets sued when the first window unit falls 18 stories and hits a pedestrian?

Certainly not the low income tenant.

Errrrr. Should have read the link first:

should read: Falls five stories....

The residents will not have the luxury of noisy Hotel/Motel AC or Heat units. These residents will be using their hot water to defrost their "high performance" European "tilt-turn windows" in the winter. Summertime sleeping quarters will by provided next to the runnel.

Not to worry. SOWA ought to have quite a few affordable rentals coming onto the market soon that do have air conditioning.

The proper way to live in Portland is without air-conditioning. You need that two weeks in August to miss the rain.

But LEED certifications are based on developers' self-reported information, huh? That explains A LOT.

Real Oregonians don't need air conditoners. Am I the only native left around here?
