Eugene River District Development Study

Rowell Brokaw Architects was selected as the Master Architect for a team led by The UO Foundation to redevelop Eugene's downtown riverfront. The 27-acre property is currently owned by the Eugene Water and Electric Board (EWEB) and has been used for industrial purposes for much of the last 100 years. The UO Foundation conducted due diligence and negotiations with EWEB and the City of Eugene for the property's purchase. The Foundation subsequently decided not to pursue the development.

Rowell Brokaw Architects has been working to support the successful transformation of this property into a vibrant, mixed-use river district since leading the EWEB Riverfront Master Plan in 2009.
