PORTLAND, Ore., Oct. 15, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Mill Creek Residential, a leading multifamily developer and operator specializing in premier apartment communities across the U.S., has announced leasing and move ins are underway at Modera Akoya, a luxury mixed-use community located on the southwestern edge of the eclectic Pearl District.

The community, which offers 295 contemporary apartment homes, a deluxe suite of amenities and approximately 20,000 square feet of ground-floor retail, boast a prime location amidst Portland’s key hot spots. The site features a near-perfect Walk Score of 99, a Transit Score of 97 and a Bike Score of 95.

«Since its revitalization in the 1990s, the Pearl District has steadily morphed into one of the most sought-after living destinations in the city,» said Sam Rodriguez, senior managing director of development in Portland for Mill Creek. «We’re excited to expand our Portland presence with Modera Akoya, which will put virtually everything at the fingertips of our residents, whether they choose to walk, bike or drive.»

Modera Akoya, built to a LEED Gold standard, is the area’s first fully smart-home-equipped community. The technology package includes keyless entry, programmable Honeywell Thermostats, Wi-Fi calling throughout the community and smart lighting controls. All of these technology features can be engaged by residents through an app or by an Alexa-enabled device via voice. The community is also offering virtual and self-guided touring and online lease options to allow for a contact-free leasing and move-in experience if desired.

Located at 1430 Northwest Hoyt Street, residents have walkable access to a variety of attractions within the eclectic Pearl District, including indie boutiques, cutting-edge restaurants, breweries and artisan coffee shops. The community sits one block from the acclaimed McMenamins Mission Theater. Residents also are within a quick commute of Downtown Portland, which is less than two miles south of the community and easily accessible from nearby Interstate 405. The Portland Streetcar, located three blocks east of the community, provides additional transit options.

Modera Akoya offers studio, one- and two-bedroom homes with a variety of stylish open floor plans. Community amenities are highlighted by a 12th-floor sky deck that features magnificent views of the city skyline, West Hills and Willamette River. Additional common-area attractions include a fire table with multiple seating areas, lobby with plush seating, yoga studio, coffee bar and a clubroom with pool table and TV lounge.
