The business occupancy rate in downtown Bend is now at 94%, and that's a record says Downtown Bend Business Association's Chuck Arnold.  Arnold says this is the culmination of 11 consecutive quarters of growth being over 90% occupancy.  He says downtown Bend has some attractive features that really draws in businesses and visitors.  “I think it is a gathering place for the community. I think the vent absolutely add to it. But really our strength is the kind of quaintness of our downtown, the bones of it, if you will. The beauty of it, and the strength of the businesses that are established here. People want to be a part of that kind of community and have their business located next to or adjacent to a very successful business in downtown."  Arnold says the new businesses include a fine art gallery, a new your Jewish deli, a mortgage company, an Oregon based artisan gift shop and a paint-your-own- pottery studio.
