Smart. Sustainable. Inspired.

Ethos Development is a Portland-based real estate development firm active on the West coast.

Every project represents a thoughtful big idea, not a one-size-fits-all solution. Primarily working in urban environments, Ethos and its design partners harness unique solutions to build high performance, low impact buildings. Unyielding attention to detail makes for inspired design, creating places where people want to be.

Connecting capital & culture

Great development projects benefit residents, businesses, communities and investors. The right project is one that works within the context of the project site, the neighborhood and community fabric; good buildings make good neighbors. Getting all of this right ultimately generates positive social and environmental impact alongside a superior financial return.

“Our projects are built for the long-term; years after the building has transitioned to a new owner, it still remains a fixture in the community. This is why it is not just smart, but critical to build durable and inspired buildings.”
