What is the proposed project?

The proposed project is a new 6-story building, called the Montgomery. It includes the following:

  • 66 rental units are ‘income-qualified’ and available to households at 80% of Eugene’s area median income (AMI), a federally defined criteria.
  • 63 rental units that are ‘market-rate’, which means there is no income restriction.
  • 10 of the income-qualified units will be set aside for victims of domestic violence, in partnership with Womenspace, a Eugene-based non-profit that provides women-centered services to victims and survivors of domestic and sexual violence.
  • Resident services provided by Cornerstone Community Housing through their Healthy Homes program, which supports interventions and services that promote housing access, retention, and stabilization.
  • The ground floor, facing Willamette Street and 11th Avenue will include commercial space, offered at low rents and available to start-up businesses.
  • A public gallery, with opportunities for community art displays, and an outdoor mural.
  • Pet-care areas, to exercise and wash dogs. The building will welcome households with dogs.

The building will also include green building features and will be certified under LEED Multifamily criteria.
