Central Portland is booming as the housing market recovers — and in some long-established neighborhoods, the effect of infill development has been jarring.
In 2013 and 2014, a big uptick in demolitions of single-family homes to build new houses or apartment buildings caused a stir. Neighbors have clashed with developers over a lack of notice, concerns about asbestos or thepotential loss of a historic home.
Remmers has been involved in building both apartments and single-family homes through his company, Everett Custom Homes.
Sebastian’s Renaissance Homes was once one of the leading suburban builders in the Portland area, but now it focuses on infill houses in the city of Portland.
