A New Lifestyle and Business Center

Every building tells a story, but few buildings are founded on as clear as a vision as W.E. Miner’s in 1925. We use his vision as a model for the building's place in our city; we provide commercial spaces for modern use while maintaining the historic charm and character of the building. After more than 90 years, The Miner Building continues to stand as a beacon of longevity, prosperity, and success.

Published on April 1st, 1925, W.E. Miner shared this vision for the future of the building:

“When I first came to Eugene I visioned it a city of progress and prosperity. It was my ambition to erect one of the finest buildings here -- to build for posterity. So I planned a metropolitan structure, a building of eight stories that some day would be even higher. It was my vision, but it was a business vision, founded on basic business principles.
I found hearty co-operation in Eugene, and each day I grew more optimistic over this great project. As the building grew, so did my faith in the city.
The Willamette Valley, of which this city is the center, is one of the greatest regions in the United States. It is blessed with a wonderful agricultural fertility, and abundant resources for industry. Nearby is a great body of timber, a resource that is becoming more valuable every day.
I believe I have chosen wisely, and the men who constructed my structure have builded well. It is with great faith that I face the future in Eugene. May every resident of this valley share this faith, and may all of us work together for a greater Eugene.”
-- W.E. Miner // April 1st, 1925
