Welcome to The Jourdain

The Jourdain offers a wide range of apartments from studios to three-bedroom townhome family units.

Underground parking helps preserve the grounds for green space and a playground. An on-site market provides convenience for residents and the greater neighborhood.

Development History

The Jourdain opened in 2006 as the second development of the South Quarter development (formerly Franklin Portland Gateway). Through a partnership between Aeon and Hope Community, the once blighted intersection of Franklin and Portland Avenues is being completely transformed into 300 high quality, mixed-income apartments and townhomes, along with new retail businesses and community space.

Other developments at the intersection are Children's Village Center, The Rose and The Wellstone. Designed to be family- and pedestrian-friendly, the South Quarter development has completely changed this once vacant intersection into an attractive, vibrant community hub.

The building's name honors Winifred Jourdain, “Godmother of the White Earth Reservation.” Winnie Jourdain, bought a home at the corner of Franklin and Portland Avenues in 1944. Her home became a refuge for hundreds of American Indians who needed community connections to help in navigating life in the city.
