May Chapter Meeting

  • Sam Bond's Brewing 540 East 8th Avenue Eugene, OR, 97401 United States (map)

1 AIA LU/HSW Available - RSVP HERE

This month's chapter meeting will talk about the future of the Riverfront Steam Plant. Located prominently along the banks of the Willamette River, the Steam Plant is an iconic representative of our community’s history and is ripe with possibility. 

The redevelopment of the Steam Plant is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to honor the historic significance of the Downtown Riverfront site while embracing its potential to be a place the community is proud of.  With the strategic redevelopment of the building, the Steam Plant can become a world-class destination and anchor of activity that serves the community, enhances the riverfront experience, protects riparian habitat, and retains the historic nature of the site.
 
Earlier this month, the City took the first steps to bring the Steam Plant into the next phase of its life, issuing a Request for Qualifications for the future redevelopment of the building. Amanda D’Souza will be here to provide more information on the Steam Plant’s history and the process for determining its future. For more information, please visit www.eugene-or.gov/SteamPlant.
