The owner of the burned-out Southtowne Lanes in south Eugene is proposing to tear down most of the remains of the bowling alley and build in its place a mixed-use commercial building, according to preliminary plans filed with the city. The project would convert the 15,000-square-foot bowling alley, which was almost completely destroyed by fire in August, into a one-story, 10,500-square-foot commercial building. The building would not include a bowling alley but instead would be divided into five or six suites at the corner of Willamette Street and West 25th Avenue, the plans show.

A key element of the proposal is that the new development would have much more parking than the cramped, roughly 20-space lot now in front of Southtowne Lanes.
