As part of our ongoing focus on improving access to housing in our region, Columbia Pacific is working to convert the Red Lion Hotel in south Seaside (900 S Holladay Drive) into affordable housing for community members and healthcare providers.
By converting an existing building into housing, we will be able to accelerate the construction schedule and complete the project for approximately half the cost of a new building. Columbia Pacific has contracted with Bremik Construction/CIDA Architecture to complete the renovation (additional details below).
Upon opening in late-spring 2024, 50-60 unit housing complex will be known as The Hawk’s Eye Apartments.
Housing units will be reserved for healthcare workers, largely through agreements between provider organizations and the CCO. Permanent supportive housing units will be managed by Clatsop Behavioral Health and made available based on individual need, including specific health conditions. At this point, there is no mechanism for individuals to express interest in a housing unit.
"The lack of housing is a huge barrier to getting medical providers to come work in our community. We lose potential staff every week."
− Pam Cooper, Director of Finance for Providence Seaside Hospital
Columbia Pacific CCO and CareOregon selected Bremik Construction/CIDA Architecture as the design-build contractor responsible for remodeling the Red Lion Inn & Suites in Seaside.
Subcontracting opportunities: Bremik Construction will advertise bid opportunities in local newspapers and trade publications, and post documents in plan rooms. Additionally, it will work with the Seaside Chamber of Commerce and other agencies to share the opportunity with members.

The Columbia Pacific and CareOregon team considered many names with a meaningful association to wellness and health care. The theme of the color blue was selected for its connection to health, specifically behavioral health. The Hawk’s Eye gemstone has been used for centuries to heal the mind, body and spirit. The name of The Hawk’s Eye Apartments, therefore, has a thematic resonance with the vision and purpose of the building.
Columbia Pacific’s investment in housing is in response to community feedback. Access to safe, affordable housing is identified in the CCO’s 2019-2024 Regional Health Improvement Plan as a top priority across our region. More than 1,900 community members provided feedback to inform this plan. Read more about our Commitment to Affordable Housing.
