Housing Under Development
101 one, two, and three bedroom units
Bascom Village will be a 101 unit complex located at County Farm Road and Parkview Drive in Eugene. It will include flats, two-story townhome style duplexes, three-story apartment buildings, and two community centers. The project will be constructed in two phases (53 units in phase I and 48 in phase II). This project is a partnership between St. Vincent de Paul and the Housing & Community Service Agency of Lane County (HACSA).
All residents at Bascom Village will have access to an outstanding resident services program. The core goal of services provided is to help tenants build social and financial capital to assist in achieving their own goals. Units at Bascom Village will be affordable to families and individuals at or below 50% of the area median income (AMI). Five units will be set aside for successful graduates of SVDP’s Living Independently Following Treatment (LIFT) program.
On November 28, 2011 the Eugene City Council approved our proposal to acquire the property. They also agreed to provide HOME funds and development fee waivers. St. Vincent de Paul will apply to Oregon and Housing and Community Services in April 2012 for additional funding for Phase 1 of the project. If funded, construction will commence in Spring 2013 with completion in Summer 2014.
54 one, two, and three bedroom units
Estimated Completion: Summer 2013
Stellar Apartments will be a 54 unit family housing development located just north of the Westmoreland School site at 17th Avenue and City View Street in Eugene. This project will include a mixture of one, two, and three bedroom townhome style apartments and flats.
Stellar Apartments will also provide appropriate and enriching services for all our residents. These services include: asset-building programs; services to help families achieve financial and life goals; services to build residential community; and services for youth and children. Additional support services will be provided for the VetLIFT and National Guard populations through collaboration with other organizations. These additional services will be unique to these populations and will include assessment, access to veterans’ services, and peer support groups.
On September 8, 2010, Eugene City Council unanimously approved funding for Stellar Apartments, which includes the land, HOME funds, and system development charge waivers. On August 19, 2011, SVDP was awarded funds from Oregon and Housing and Community Services for the remainder of funding to complete the project. This includes LIHTC (Low Income Housing Tax Credits), GHAP (General Housing Account Program), and OAHTC (Oregon Affordable Housing Tax Credits). Completion is likely in Summer 2013.
