Modera Belmont

As one of the first residential developments in a historically industrial area of Portland’s eastside, the Modera Belmont apartments is poised to bring vitality to its neighborhood. While it now stands out as a modern and iconic building with bold massing, it is designed to become a cornerstone of anticipated urban development in this area.

The ground floor of Modera Belmont is devoted to retail, with the upper five stories consisting of a mix of studios, lofts, and one- and two-bedroom apartments. The interior finishes incorporate nature-inspired materials and patterns with an emphasis on handcrafts – a characteristic of Portland culture. Wood elements throughout the building pay respect to our timber town history. Local makers and artists added their talents with one-of-a-kind furniture pieces, area rugs, original artwork and murals.

Resident amenity spaces include a lounge adjacent to the lobby, as well as a fitness room, bike lounge and repair room on the first floor. Upper floors feature a video game room, a common room on the top floor, and a rooftop terrace with views of the river and downtown. A central courtyard provides public space along the street, with private areas further back. The courtyard also manages all of the stormwater onsite through elegant concrete, steel and wood planters.
