919 Bond Street – Modern Living, Downtown Bend

I attended an event at the 919 Bond Building last night. Man that place is swanky. I instantly felt hipper the second I walked through the doors. The 919 Bond building located downtown was developed by Taylor Pickhardt Development LLC and features 4 modern condominiums, a street level restaurant, The Loft of Bend private wine club, full service executive office suites, and a rooftop garden.

Volo restaurant on the main level is billed as an upscale yet casual restaurant serving contemporary American cuisine. We had the opportunity to sample some appetizers and I was not dissapointed. I can’t remember exactly what they served but I do remember a mushroom puff that was great. There really aren’t enough opportunities to eat “puffs” if you ask me. The wait staff (all impossibly beautiful) was very friendly and attentive and managed to meander through the large crowd without ever being in the way. And they always managed to swoop in and refill my wine glass before I completely swalloped the last sip. A true measure of excellent service.  

The second level features a social club, called The Loft of Bend, and office suites. The Loft will be limited to 250 members and will cater to the growing ranks of destination resort residents in Central Oregon who want to meet downtown for a catered business meeting or to entertain guests. Each member will have their own temperature-controlled lockers for storing cases of wine.  Adam Bledsoe is the owner and operator, and Drew Bledsoe and Chad Wold are partners in the venture. The Loft of Bend is scheduled to open by late June. The 14 office suites, 6 of which are already reserved, are full service. Monthly lease rates range from $820/month for 156 square feet to $1495 for 272 square feet and include membership to The Loft of Bend, access to rooftop garden, concierge service, wireless printer, fax machine and copier, all utilities including wireless internet connection, janitorial service, phone system, and a common area with kitchen and conference area.

And now for the condos. There are 4 condos in the 919 Bond building but they’ve already accepted reservations on 2 of them. They are all finished in a similar warm, modern style and have extraordinary views. My favorite was Condo Unit 304. It’s 2,561 square feet with 2 bedrooms, 2.5 baths. This unit is west facing with so many floor to ceiling windows I wished I had my sunglasses. There is an enourmous deck off the main living area and by enormous, I mean 1338 square feet. I’ve shown houses smaller than that deck. For a price tag of $1,500,000, the interiors are finished with CeasarStone countertops, Viking appliances, bamboo wood floors, Anegre/Wenge cabinetry, cut pile wool carpet in bedrooms, in-floor heat in master baths, air conditioning, floor to ceiling slider doors, built in BBQ, double sided fireplace, two master suites, wet bar, and come wired for stereo & security. The floor plan is available here: Condo 304  The other 3 available condos are Condo 301, Condo 404, and Condo 401.

    Great post !
    Generally it is very intresting kind of investment, but I think that real estate is loosing it’s price too much.
    I own a site with prices for Moscow real estate listings and from the begining of this year it wasn’t grew….
    Anyway american real estate is more stabil in this case.

  4. Bend is a beautiful place especially by Mirrior Pond. The old Mill district and downtown are beautiful as well. WE lived in Bend for over 12 year moved down south by the beach. Prices have fallen due to the difficult economic times which is unfortunate for some and an opportunity for others. We are in the process of buyng a second home there, and can’t wait for summer.
