Propel co-founder Lucas Gray, was recently quoted in an article for Realtor magazine. The article, "See what’s popping up in backyards", speaks about the rise in Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs) also known as Granny Flats or laneway suites, as a response to the scarcity of affordable housing. Lucas was pleased to lend his expertise to this article; Propel has years of experience with ADUs in the Portland area and appreciate the benefits they bring to our community. As a community focused design firm, it's important for us to design housing that addresses affordability, equity, diversity and creates thriving neighborhoods and wonderful places to call home. A healthy mix of single family residences, multifamily housing and ADUs as infill create vibrant communities and provides options for equitable housing solutions as costs continue to skyrocket.
