EUGENE, Ore. — Two hundred and fifty million dollars have been invested in downtown Eugene in the last four years.

Cranes are up at the core campus project on East Broadway and the new Northwest Community Credit Union headquarters on Eighth Avenue.

Plans are also under way for a multi-use development at Sixth and Oak and a sprawling complex of restaurants, housing and office space on EWEB’s riverfront property.

And all this follows the renovation of the Broadway Commerce Center construction of the Woolworth Building and a new Lane Community College downtown campus.

This is all great news, says one city councilor.

“I think in addition, continuing to promote and remind folks of all the new restaurants, entertainment venues and living space is going to be very important,” said Councilor Clair Syrett, Ward 7.
