EUGENE, Ore. (AP) — A Eugene developer has purchased a parcel of vacant land near the University of Oregon and might use it to build a six-story, 251-unit student housing complex.

The Register-Guard reports ( ) that Orchard Crossing LLC, headed by Roy Carver III, bought the 1-acre plot for $1.85 million on Monday. Last year, he submitted tentative plans to the city for a six-story, 251-unit student housing complex on that spot. According to the plans, it is zoned for apartments.

Carver's proposal says every unit would be a studio apartment with a Murphy-style wall bed.

The land is immediately south of the Skybox and Courtside student apartments.

According to a filing with the Oregon secretary of state's office, Carver formed Orchard Crossing in April.

Carver did not respond to a request for comment.
