Apartment 202 is Calling You!

UPDATE: All apartments are rented.

Who will it be?

The corner of Sixth and Main streets in downtown Cottage Grove has hummed with new activity for well over a year now, and it’s all leading up to a series of magical moments — when downtown’s newest residents come home!

The complete renovation of the historic Bank Building, built in 1904 at 609 Main Street, continues at an impressive pace, though the search for its newest tenants, who will bring life to a collection of office and business spaces downstairs and six stylish apartments upstairs, is already in full swing.

In fact, owner Len Blackstone has announced that Apartment 202 in the Bank Building will be available on April 1, 2020. This three-bedroom charmer features 12-foot ceilings and a commanding view of Main Street through its beautiful new dormer window, but these are far from its only attributes.

Like its neighbors, 202 boasts brand-new amenities such as: new kitchens with stainless steel appliances; granite-like countertops and custom cabinets; washer-dryer and pantries; large 7-foot windows with deep window sills (a great place for plants!) and children’s safety latches; bathrooms with a classic, historic feel (including old-fashioned floor tiles with porcelain tub shower) and heat pumps.

Further, the new wrap-around kitchen is a cook’s delight, with stainless steel dishwasher, gas cook stove and oven, microwave and refrigerator-freezer.

The new kitchen is being completed. Countertops are going in this week.

At $1550 per month, Apartment 202 is priced right for Cottage Grove’s median income, and with three bedrooms, its rent can certainly be shared. Still, its character and quality are enhanced by a style of living that simply can’t be overvalued.

Simply put, the Bank Building’s new apartments offer the best of both worlds — the energy of urban living nestled among the kind of close-knit community found only in a small town. Its residents will have the charms of downtown Cottage Grove just outside their door; they’ll be front-and-center for its many Art Walks, parades and gatherings and just a short stroll from two of its famed covered bridges.

Within just a four-block radius of the Bank Building are nine unique restaurants — from white tablecloth to family-style to grab-and-go. The historic downtown district has multiple specialty gift stores, antique shops, three independent bookstores, and more professional offices. Here, you’ll find the most intact collection of early 20th-Century buildings in Lane County, in addition to the beginning of one of Oregon’s most spectacular bike trails — the famed 14-mile, paved Row River Trail, which meanders along lakes, rivers, covered bridges, scenic viewpoints, farms and picnic areas.

Bank Building residents will be able to amble easily to downtown’s attractions, then onward to it parks and home again. They’ll shop in its mom-and-pop stores and, over time, get to know Mom an Pop. And if they aren’t already aware, they’ll get to know why Cottage Grove’s residents love this little town so much.

So, are you ready to come home? Blackstone has also pointed out that, along with Apartment 202, its two-bedroom neighbor, Apartment 206, will also be available in April. Here you have two spanking new apartments in a historic building for those who simply must have it all!

UPDATE. 202 has rented. 204 and 205 are the only ones left.
