Six-story Mixed-use Building Downtown was Proposed by Eugene Developer

The first cross-laminated timber building a six-story building in the center of the city is proposed by a local developer.

The building would feature three stories of market-rate housing, mainly studio apartments, ground-floor trade as well as two floors of office space.

The above-mentioned building is called The Warehouse, would be at 11th Avenue and Oak Street, on the site of the one-story building previously housed Thompson’s Electronics. The place is near north of First Christian Church.
Craig Weicker, who is developing the project with the help of his limited liability company, Geary Street Ventures said: “I’m trying to create a vibrant community there in the building that would add to the downtown community, as well.”

Property records show that Geary Street Ventures obtained the almost quarter–acre property from the Thompson family for $1,010,000 in June.
Weicker said he scheduled to apply for building permits most likely in January. He said that if the project stays on agenda, workers would break ground next summer.
He declined to unfold a total project cost.

On Tuesday, search and rescue teams were sent out in the search for Matt Denberg. A friend of Matt Denberg’s was informed about his whereabouts, Babyfoot Trail from Friday to Sunday, before the trip. Denburg had asked his friend to notify authorities he he had not returned from his trip by a certain time.

By Monday evening, the Sheriff was notified.

“A friend of his called and said he was supposed to be back on Sunday, so we went out to the trail head and sure enough his car was there,” Daniel said.

Crews started searching for Denberg via air Tuesday morning.

Matt Denberg is believed to be about 45 years old.

“We sent out two fixed-wing airplanes to cover the six-day trail hike and couldn’t locate anything,” Daniel said. “It’s a huge area with a pretty expansive trail system, maybe 45 miles.”

On Wednesday morning the U.S. Coast Guard joined in efforts with a helicopter.

Daniel said a local search and rescue member who knows the area well helped the Coast Guard with their search.

Additional information will be added to the story as it becomes available.

A New Bridge Above Amazon Creek Makes Travel for Cyclists, Pedestrians and Buses Easier

Construction has begun over Amazon Creek in plans for a cyclist and pedestrian bridge. The $100 million project is called the Eugene EmX project. The bridge will provide a safe route for cyclists and pedestrians that go through different neighborhoods that are located south of the creek all the way to W 11th Ave. The bridge is 90 feet long connects bicycles and pedestrians to a bus stop and W 11th Ave.
A faster and more frequently passing variety of buses will be available for use next year. The construction for the 4 ½ mile route for this bus started three years ago between downtown and Randy Pape Beltline which is intersected with W 11th Ave. These buses will give cyclists the option to walk on to the bus with their bikes and have them parked on the inside. This rapid bus is scheduled for September 2017.
The bridge is scheduled to finish spring 2017. One bridge has already been finished and installed at Acorn Park. Another bridge is scheduled to be built as a part of the project but the location and dates are not known. This bridge will serve the residents who live in neighborhoods that are located south of the creek and will be useful for people who shop and work on W 11th Ave.
A $2.9 million state grant covers the cost of the bridges. Each bridge weighs about, if no more than 42,000 lbs which is about 21 tons. The bridges will also be the same width which is 14 ft wide, with the same arch design and grey paint. A company in Minnesota is responsible for building the structure.
