BEND, Ore. (AP) -- Developers have proposed adding almost 400 rental units to Bend's tight supply.
The Bulletin newspaper reports that Vancouver, Wash.-based Hoviss Development Group wants to build four apartment buildings that would add 241 units to the inventory. A blueprint shows plans for a combination of studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments, as well as a name for the development, Aspen Heights.
Meanwhile, local developer Craig Studwell has submitted plans to construct a 144-unit apartment complex called Woodhaven in southeast Bend.
Rents have been getting more expensive in Bend because the vacancy rate is less than 2 percent.
