Kôr Community Land Trust invites the public and press to attend the groundbreaking of its second development, Crescita, on Tuesday, November 2 at 12pm. The short, 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 one-bedroom, one flex-space, 1.5-bath, 936-square-foot 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 percent AMI. Kôr is currently accepting applications through November 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.

Note, this is a dirt site and proper footwear is suggested. Parking has yet to be developed, so attendees are encouraged to park on neighboring streets. RSVPing to Executive Director Jackie Keogh at jkeogh@korlandtrust.org or 541-247-1244 is encouraged, but not required.
