Dougherty Court (formerly Douglass Commons) will be a welcoming neighborhood development of mixed rental and limited equity ownership homes in the Libbytown Neighborhood in Portland. The 43 & 91 Douglass Street parcel was chosen by the city in 2019 for redevelopment as mixed rental and ownership homes affordable to a range of incomes and household sizes. Maine Cooperative Development Partners and the Szanton Company put forward a proposal for the site that was selected by the city in 2020. The project received planning board approval in May 2022, and completion is targeted for 2024.
The site plan above shows current site plan. Douglass Street is along the bottom of the plan; Congress Street is to the right, and to the left is the new playground planned by the City of Portland, and beyond that is the Dougherty Fields. The blue buildings are 10 and 11 unit buildings. The 10 unit buildings are Community Flats have a social lobby, function room, guest room, and a 2BR and 3BR on the first floor; the uppers floors each have two two bedroom and one bedroom units. The 11 unit building has a studio instead of the guest room and function room. The pink buildings are Townhomes, each with a two story 3BR home with back patio. The yellow buildings are Rowhomes; they have 1BR homes on the first floor, and 3BR homes on the second and third floors. The large green building is the apartments being developed by The Szanton Company.
