Portland's new sustainable urban development opens in January!
409 Cumberland, Portland's new sustainable urban development is now accepting applications. Designed to combine healthy living and an urban location, 409 Cumberland will create a community in Portland unlike any other. It's located on the corner of Forest and Cumberland avenues, and will open in January 2015 featuring 57 efficiency, one- and two-bedroom apartments. Residents will be within walking distance to the shops, restaurants and services of Bayside, the Arts District and the Old Port. Read more about this new sustainable urban development in Portland.
