2017 Greedy Landlord Awards! Honoring Ira Virden of HFF real estate, owner of the Normandy Apartments

Wednesday, May 24, 11:30am Shemanski Park, 1010 SW Park Ave, downtown Portland

In December, Ira Virden purchased the Normandy Apartments on NE Killingsworth Street and immediately informed the residents that he was doubling their rent. All 18 households include people of color, and the vast majority have children who attend schools in the Cully neighborhood. As a result of Ira’s predatory business model, 30 kids will lose their homes.
