A perspective from Oregon’s mid-Willamette Valley

A musical kind of place?

Written January 30th, 2015 by Hasso Hering

Oboes? Flutes? Or are we talking clarinets or even saxophones? Hard to tell from the announcement that the Woodland Square housing development in Albany now will have a new name: Woodwind Apartments.


Name for Woodland Square? Not yet

Written January 5th, 2015 by Hasso Hering

If you’re wondering about the new name of the Albany housing development at Salem Avenue and Pine Street, you’ll have to wonder a while longer.


‘Woodland Square’ wants new name

Written December 8th, 2014 by Hasso Hering

Woodland Square is beginning to look for tenants, as the sign indicates, but by the time the first ones move in early next year, this brand new Albany apartment complex will likely have a different name.


An update on Woodland Square

Written October 16th, 2014 by Hasso Hering

The apartment buildings in Albany’s Woodland Square project are going up pretty fast. At least it seems that way to this frequent passerby. And it’s possible the first residents may be able to move in next February.


Across Pine, it’ll be a church gym

Written September 20th, 2014 by Hasso Hering

Riding around Albany in glorious weather on the last Saturday of summer, I noticed that construction doesn’t necessarily stop on weekends, at least not on the block of Pine Street between Second and Salem avenues.


‘Woodland’ no more, for now

Written July 6th, 2014 by Hasso Hering

Albany’s former Woodland Square was a dilapidated trailer park but was aptly named for its big old trees. Soon it will be a new apartment complex with the same name, but for now it looks more like Stumpland Square.


CARA: Progress, and a tough call

Written June 17th, 2014 by Hasso Hering

CARA, Albany’s downtown urban renewal program, this week is beginning to see tangible results from two of the biggest projects it has supported with financial aid. It also faces the tough call of whether to extend and perhaps even forgive a $200,000 loan whose terms call for it to be repaid now.
