Owen Gabbert is a native Oregonian who grew up in NE Portland. Watching his neighborhood grow and change led to an interest in how that process happens and what it means for a city. In 2012, he started a real estate development and general contracting company to more actively participate in the creation of spaces, homes, and communities. Owen partners with industrious small business owners, imaginative homeowners, and innovative operators to realize their dreams for the built environment. Most recently, he completed a 26-bedroom co-living project just off N Mississippi with his company Owen Gabbert LLC.
