First, Oregon HUD web site has summary of recent news stories about small apartments in Portland (including FHA financed Freedom Center project) and elsewhere HERE.
Second, I ran across new HUD resource that provides some localized housing market data [Market at a Glance Reports] HERE using pull down menus at the metro and county levels. Sample PDF 2 pager for Portland metro is HERE. Latest data is from August, not clear how frequent updates are done.
