Majority of lots at 15th Street and Reed Market Road would be town houses
Pahlisch Homes hopes to start construction this summer on a new subdivision at the busy intersection of 15th Street and Reed Market Road in southeast Bend.
Town houses would take up the majority of 120 lots in Luderman Crossing, according to plans the company filed with the city of Bend. Pahlisch intends to purchase about 16.5 acres on the southwest corner of the intersection.
Most of the property is the former Luderman Ranch. Hayden Homes met with city planners in 2017 to talk about its tentative plan for single-family homes, or a combination of single-family and multifamily buildings, but didn’t move forward.
“Southeast Bend is getting hammered with development, and it’s being very short-sighted because we don’t have the infrastructure to handle it,” said Beth Larsen, a southeast Bend resident who attended a neighborhood meeting with Pahlisch representatives early this year. Larsen also is unhappy because developing the formerly rural property will mean removing trees — more than 200, according to a development summary.
