One of Portland's major property management companies is taking advantage of Portland's rising demand for low-car housing by stepping up its bike-friendly housing portfolio. Check out all the references to bikes and biking in the news release they'll be widely circulating tomorrow (emphases mine):
Guardian Management LLC (Guardian), a division of Guardian Real Estate Services LLC, picks up two new apartment communities oriented toward the low-car and car-free lifestyle. Linden, a 135 unit mixed-use community located on East Burnside is currently in lease up and will open near the end of September. Guardian was also awarded the management contract for Milano Apartments on August 1.
I'm happy to introduce the Real Estate Beat, a new editorial focus that will be covered by BikePortland News Editor Michael Andersen. With his past experience as publisher of Portland Afoot Michael is the perfect person to cover this for us. He'll help you understand why real estate development and housing issues have major implications for people who lead a low-car lifestyle. — Jonathan

A new housing development opening this weekend in North Portland will combine two Danish influences on our city: cohousing and biking.
On Saturday (4/17), the Daybreak Cohousing development at 2525 North Killingsworth Street will host its grand opening celebration. Daybreak is a planned community where residents own their own units and where everyone takes part in community management and share resources and spaces with one another. In 2009, Natural Home magazine named Daybreak one of the top 10 green cohousing developments in America.
