Phase 1 will be four stories, approximately 30,000 square feet and will include a public lobby/exhibit space, the City Council Chamber, the City Manager’s Office, the offices of the Mayor and Eugene City Council, additional meeting rooms, support space, parking, a civic plaza and landscaping. City Hall’s central location will contribute to the ongoing revitalization of downtown and help link downtown to future riverfront redevelopment, connecting “Willamette to Willamette” along 8th Avenue.
The project is off to a great start – meeting and even exceeding reuse and recycling goals for the deconstruction process. The deconstruction and demolition process is now complete. The portion of the site that will be the new City Hall is prepped for construction and the remainder of the site is being used for temporary parking and construction staging area. Below is a short video by McKenzie Commercial Contractors, the project’s general contractor, which dismantled, reused, and recycled the old Eugene city hall. McKenzie Commercial Project Manager, Jim Mender, helps explain the process.
