Is it possible to add an apartment to my duplex in Portland?

Asked by Roary Mcroarison, SE Portland Tue Nov 27, 2007

I have heard that the strict zoing and building rules here in Portland will make it very difficult for me to add an additional unit onto my duplex, although the UGB would seem to encourage this.

Spend some time looking through the Development Services area at

You may find your answers there, but it may also be worth spending some time talking with a planner at Builder Services (4th Ave.). They can give you some initial guidance (free) before you have to get a an architect, surveyor, builder, etc. to develop plans and apply for permits.
