A hotel and a new shopping center could soon go in on Bend’s north side. Two proposals presented to the City in the past four months could result in further development of the Cascade Village Shopping Center, and in a new development along Highway 20 between Cooley and Robal Roads. Cascade Village wants to add a 55,000 square foot hotel and add 28,000 square feet of retail space. The all-new "Promenade at Bend" would include a 215,000 square foot "retail building envelope", a separate 14,000 square foot building and five other areas for future development. An article in the Bulletin says concerns about increased traffic in the area have already slowed development in the area and ODOT has proposed rerouting Highway 97.
