$1.5M project to add apartments in Downtown Pendleton

Developer Al Plute expects to complete Odd Fellows Temple project by January 2024

PENDLETON — Developer Al Plute’s latest project is adding another boost to Pendleton’s downtown housing stock.

Plute is remodeling the 125 year-old Odd Fellows Temple, 19 S.W. Dorion Ave., to house 12 upscale apartments.

The Pendleton Development Commission approved a $60,000 facade grant and $610,000 upper story grant for the project in March of 2021. The PDC at their Tuesday, Nov. 15 meeting postponed a decision on consolidating their upper story, rejuvenation and facade restoration grants into a single urban renewal program, and will discuss the issue further at a workshop Nov. 22.
