PORTLAND, OR—The Resmark Companies is entering the Portland multifamily market in partnership with longtime joint venture investment partner LMC, a Lennar Company. The JV is set to develop Amara, a 138-unit multifamily community at 815 W. Burnside St.

“Portland is an attractive market for us. Its vibrant job market, high quality of life, relative affordability when compared to other West Coast gateway cities and innovative culture are well-suited for our multifamily strategy,” said Ziv Cohen, chief investment officer of The Resmark Companies. “This desirable site offers many of the ‘must-have’ hallmarks we seek in a development opportunity, including a best-in-class developer and an irreplaceable site close to transit, employers, retail and entertainment. Having LMC as our partner makes it the complete package for us.”
