A $67 million housing and retail redevelopment proposal on county-owned land in downtown Eugene has gotten an initial go-ahead from the Lane County commissioners.

The Eugene Register-Guard reports it calls for 170 market-rate apartments, 64 publicly subsidized apartments for low-income renters, a movie theater, grocery store, restaurants and retail space.

A county office building, now razed, occupied the two-acre site for decades.

The commissioners voted Tuesday to go ahead with talks on an interim lease and negotiation rights for the parcel.

Most of the project would be developed by Brian Obie, a former Eugene mayor, and his partners. The county Housing and Community Services Agency would develop the low-income housing.
