Portland to buy strip club for affordable housing
The Portland Housing Bureau will buy a strip club and a large empty lot across Southeast Powell Boulevard from Cleveland High School with plans to build affordable housing on the site.
The City Council on Wednesday approved a plan to buy the lot with the goal of building 100 to 300 units of affordable housing.
"The property has a relatively close-in location, it has good access to transit, and it neighbors Cleveland High School, making it ideal for families with students," said Mayor Ted Wheeler.
The city will pay $3.7 million for the lot on Powell Boulevard, which includes the Safari Club.
