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

Design, culture and the human experience are at the core of every project. Being a values driven company enhances resident, community and investor benefit.

“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 sustainable and inspired buildings.”
