Details: A small apartment complex is under construction near Awbrey Butte, and the property owner hopes to have it completed by the middle of spring.

The Debron Lane apartments, at NW Debron Lane and Summit Drive off of NW Mount Washington Drive, will feature nine two-bedroom units, each with a customized floor plan. Each of the nine apartments will be 900 to 1,100 square feet, according to Sean Fievet, principal at Debron Lane Apartments LLC, which owns the property.

Fievet said he purchased the property from Pahlisch Homes, which built several apartments in the surrounding neighborhood, in 2014. Fievet said he looked at Bend’s rental market and decided it would be a good time to invest in apartments in town.

Construction started on the Debron Lane Apartments last fall. Each of the units will have a private driveway, and three will have enclosed garages.

Fievet added that the developers were still determining the market for the apartments, which are located at the base of Awbrey Butte near Central Oregon Community College, and had not settled on a price for the units.

“We’re going to price (the apartments) competitively with what’s available on the market,” Fievet said Thursday.
