This year, the Lloyd District will be celebrating National Night Out in Holladay park on August 2nd, from 5:00 – 7:00 p.m. There will be food, live music, free swag and samples from local businesses, and a myriad of children’s activities! Hassalo on Eighth will be present, and this year we have sponsored our National Night Out event’s first puppy kissing booth, courtesy of Indigo Rescue. We are also excited to present Livable Lloyd in partnership with Go Lloyd and Lloyd EcoDistrict. Livable Lloyd is a community forum for residents in the Lloyd who are interested in helping to improve their community.

If you’re looking for something fun to do next week, take a short stroll over to the park to see us and learn what all of the fuss is about! We’ll have some pretty cool swag, including our brand new “Live Love Lloyd” t-shirts. Our shirts tend to disappear quickly; Show up early to get one!

Introducing NORM: Hassalo’s Natural Organic Recycling Machine

By: Management

If you have visited our community or leased with us, chances are good that you’ve heard about NORM, our natural wastewater treatment, re-use and disposal system. In short, the system recycles 100 percent of the black and grey water used at our community. It creates non-potable water for toilet flushing, irrigation and air conditioning. What makes NORM even cooler? It’s the largest (and only) urban-scale residential wastewater treatment and reuse system in all of North America.

Meet NORM: Hassalo on Eighth’s Natural Organic Recycling Machine

If you have visited our community or leased with us, chances are good that you’ve heard about NORM, our natural wastewater treatment, re-use and disposal system. In short, the system recycles 100 percent of the black and grey water used at our community. It creates non-potable water for toilet flushing, irrigation and air conditioning. What makes NORM even cooler? It’s the largest (and only) urban-scale residential wastewater treatment and reuse system in all of North America.

How NORM Helps the Environment:

  • Treats roughly 47,000 gallons of water a day, reducing our contribution to the city’s sewer system significantly.
  • Gives back to the landscape by creating non-potable water used for irrigation.
  • Doesn’t generate any waste of its own. Biosolids are used for fertilizer off-site, and fats, oils and gases are used for fuel.
  • Reduces water usage for our buildings by 33 percent, or 7,300,000 gallons of water per year.

If you’re new to Portland, the public transit system can be a little overwhelming. But with three of the biggest MAX lines stopping on our block, it’s easy to get to where you need to go! We took a look at TriMet’s Rail System Map this week to narrow down ten popular city locales that can be reached easily from Hassalo on Eighth. All you need to do is hop on at home, and hop off at the right MAX stop!

Hassalo on Eighth’s Top 10 MAX Stops

  1. Washington Park (Blue MAX > Hillsboro): “Park” is an understatement. Far more than just a park, Washington Park includes the Oregon Zoo, the International Rose Test Garden, Portland Japanese Garden, Hoyt Arboretum, Portland Children’s Museum, the World Forestry Center and an archery range to boot. With so many fun activities, it’s easy to spend an entire day at Washington Park.
  2. Cascade Station (Red MAX > Airport): Your one-stop shop for food, drinks and retail favorites such as Target, IKEA, Homegoods, Sport’s Authority, PetSmart, Buffalo Wild Wings and Famous Dave’s Barbecue. Catch the red at Hassalo on Eighth and hop off at Cascades to spend the day at this major shopping center!
  3. OMSI (Green MAX > SW Jackson; Orange > OMSI): Okay, you caught us… this has a train change, but it’s an easy one – and it’s worth noting that you can get to OMSI (Oregon Museum of Science and Industry) easily from Hassalo! Simply board the green line to SW Jackson and switch to the Orange line to OMSI/Milwaukie at Pioneer Place. Ride over the new Tilikum Crossing bridge and de-board at the OMSI/SE Water stop to get your science on!
  4. Pioneer Place (Red MAX > City Center): Portland’s most popular mall, Pioneer Place, is ripe with fashionable retailers. Pioneer Place is also home to Punch Bowl Social, a fantastic place to gather with friends for a fun evening of food, bowling, darts and karaoke! It’s just a 15-20 minute ride to the Pioneer Place stop.
  5. Portland Airport (Red MAX > Airport): No need to take an Uber to the airport! Save big bucks by riding the MAX instead, and show up early to poke around in the shops near your gate. The red line to the airport begins running just after 4:30 AM and delivers you to the airport’s front door in about 30 minutes. It doesn’t get any better than that!
  6. Art on the Orange Line (Orange MAX > Milwaukie): Up for an adventure? Use this guide to explore the Orange line’s public art features. More than 25 projects between Hassalo on Eighth and Milwaukie reinforce the uniqueness of Portland’s culture and help to encourage sustainability and environmental stewardship. Board the green line to SW Jackson and change trains at Pioneer Place… then sit back and enjoy the scenery.
  7. Providence Park (Red MAX > City Center): If you’re a Portland native, then you already know that easy access to this stop is a big deal… and if you’re a newcomer, we’d be surprised if you haven’t already heard about the Timbers (2015 champs!) and the Thorns! These two teams are the center of Portland’s attention during soccer season. For a spirited experience you’ll never forget and yearn to relive, attend a game at Providence Park this season!
  8. Pioneer Courthouse (Blue MAX > Hillsboro): Commonly referred to as Portland’s living room, Pioneer Courthouse Square is home to the Portland Art Museum and many of the city’s major events, including the annual tree-lighting ceremony, Holiday Ale Festival and NW Book Festival. The square’s brick foundation in and of itself is built on a tradition. Portlanders are invited to buy a brick and have their name inscribed on its face as a symbol of the people who make the city so extraodinary.
  9. Waterfront (Green MAX > SW Jackson; Orange > SW Moody): 
    Another quick and easy train change will get you to South Waterfront, home of Portland’s summertime farmer’s market. Ride the green line to Jackson and transfer to the orange line. Hop off at South Waterfront/SW Moody on a Saturday morning to enjoy local restaurants, a walk along the water or Portland Saturday Market (opening March 5th)!
  10. Clackamas Town Center (Green MAX > Clackamas): If you’ve got time for a ride, you can take the green line out to Clackamas Town Center. It’s a slightly longer commute, but certainly worthwhile! Clackamas Town Center is another major shopping destination for Portland’s residents. Shop until you drop, and then grab lunch or dinner at the RAM, a favorite local restaurant and brewery.

Clearly, whether you’re vehicle-free, looking to save on gas or simply not in the mood to drive, the MAX can get you just about anywhere. At Hassalo on Eighth, public transit is truly at your doorstep. In short, what we mean to say is, “No wheels? No problem.”
