Be amongst the first to live at The Foundations, Portland

You could be part of the evolving creative community being developed at The Foundations in the heart of Portland.

The collection of heritage listed cottages along Williwa Street, once a reminder of the towns decline after the closing of the Portland cement Works, are returning to their former glory thanks to a multi million dollar restoration by The Foundations.

The six duplexes are being restored in line with heritage guidelines and will be among the first residences on the site, and will be available as residential rental properties in early April 2024.

The whole street-scape is now reinvigorated with the new paint, roofs, and windows proudly facing the street once again.

The cottages have all been restored to their original layouts and structures added over the years have been removed. The work completed will ensure that the buildings will now stay as part of the street-scape for decades to come.

It is the next step in a long process as The Foundations begins to reposition from temporary activation projects to a more permanent focus, with many large scale events being planned along with other permanent activations being developed at the moment.

The last five years have seen the former Cement Works site completely reinvented to an arts and cultural precinct hosting a range of events, including the popular Twilight Markets, returning on the Easter Long weekend.
