EUGENE, Ore. -- A new apartment building is going up right down the street from the Crescent Village Apartments in Eugene.

It's the third complex to go up in the area in just a couple of years.

The new building will be named The McKenzie at Crescent Village. It'll be comprised of eight buildings -- 177 apartments total.

As of the end of August, it was in the public improvement phase. That involves building the street that will lead to the building.

The construction manager, Robert Wood, told KEZI 9 News the building will be different from others in the area.

"Each property satisfies a different need or demand. So, we’re trying to also satisfy the need for studio units. So this one is going to have studios where the others do not,” Wood said.

The building will also feature an indoor basketball court, a swimming pool and other amenities.

The construction site is on the north side of Crescent Avenue, just east of Coburg Road. Just across the way, there are cafes, restaurants and other businesses.

The owner of Mes Amis Cafe, Alice Carlson, hopes it will bring in new business.

“We anticipate more new faces coming in and people able to access us foot-traffic wise. Families, people enjoying our outdoor seating and coming down on bicycles and just having more of that coffee community that we've been trying to nurture,” Carlson said.

Construction will start in late September.

Builders expect the apartments to be ready in November of 2019.
