BEND, Ore. (KTVZ) -- Kôr Community Land Trust invites the public to attend the groundbreaking of its second development, Crescita, on Tuesday, Nov. 2 at noon. The brief outdoor event will celebrate the start of construction of Kôr’s net-zero, affordable homeownership development at 2500 NE Eighth Street in Bend.
Located in the Orchard District, these 1-bedroom, 1 flex space, 1.5-bath, 936 square feet homes are designed to net-zero energy standards and feature solar panels, an energy efficient building envelope, lighting and mechanicals. Kôrazón is a mixed-income community designed to serve Bend's workforce, earning between 40-120% of AMI (average median income).
Kôr is currently accepting applications through Nov. 13 to purchase a home in this community. The units will be permanently affordable through the Community Land Trust model, serving the community’s affordable housing needs for generations.
Crescita was designed by Full Circle and developed by Kôr Community Land Trust, in partnership with Housing Works. Funding was made possible by the City of Bend, Oregon Housing and Community Services, Washington Federal Bank, Meyer Memorial Trust and a number of local donors.
