We offer 10, 11, and 12 month lease terms on all of our luxury apartments in Portland. *These are subject to change without notice.
We love cats! Sorry, no dogs at this time. We do ask that you limit it to one indoor cat at least one year old and ask for an additional $400 pet deposit, available for refund. There’s also a monthly $25 pet rent.
We kindly ask that all those applying for the apartment home make a combined total 3 times the monthly rent, gross earnings. So for example, if the apartment you’re interested in renting is $1,300, all applicants combined must make $3,900 per month to qualify.
All of them! That’s right, you read that correctly. Our amenities come free of charge! We proudly provide our state-of-the-art amenities as a courtesy to enhance your living experience with us!

The opportunities for activities at our Sylvan Heights apartments are endless!
Sylvan Apartments’ utility charges are based on whether you live in a one or two bedroom apartment home. One bedroom apartment homes have a monthly charge of $45. ($40 for water/sewer and $5 for garbage). Our two bedroom Portland luxury apartments have a monthly charge of $57. ($50 for water/sewer and $7 for garbage.) We happily cover all recycling charges! These amounts are not included in the stated rent. Residents are responsible for setting up their own Portland General Electric (PGE) account, which is required before taking possession of the apartment, and pay them directly.
Residents are approved with either a $350 deposit or an amount equal to one month’s rent. This is determined after our third party vendor reviews your rental history, credit check, and criminal background check. *Security deposit amounts are subject to change at any time without notice.
As soon as possible! The second you submit your application, proof of income, identification, and pay your application fee(s), your application gets sent to our third party screening company to review. This process rarely takes longer than 24 hours. We’ll call or email you with the outcome as soon as we’re notified so we can keep the apartment rental process moving!
We review applicants and their need for a co-signer on an as-needed basis. Inquire with the leasing office for more details.
Of course! All residents have the option to add or remove roommates during their stay with us. All changes regarding occupants must meet occupancy guidelines and all new roommates 18 years of age or older must apply, pay all necessarily application fees, be approved, and be added to the lease before moving into the community.
For your convenience, we accept online payments! Pay your rent for free with an e-check, use a debit card for a small fee, or use Visa, MasterCard, or American Express for a fee dictated by those companies. Paying online allows you to pay any time, anywhere!
