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. Project completion is targeted for 2024.
